Reclaiming Voices, Renewing Hope
So many of the women we see at Career Wardrobe are facing challenges – lack of education, low-paying jobs, unemployment, chronic poverty – which keep them from becoming independent and self-sufficient. Thousands come to Career Wardrobe each year, to reclaim their voices, and gain a renewed sense of hope.
Through a stylish, professional suit, a brand new resume, in-depth education on matters of communication and time management, and internship opportunities, Career Wardrobe gives women something you can’t find in any store or classroom: confidence.
Back in May, DeShante was shy, reserved, and feeling like she didn’t have many options. By September, she had nothing but possibilities ahead. Career Wardrobe’s programs “helped me grow a lot!” she said as she walked towards the door. The difference in her is one we see echoed in nearly 3,000 women each year.
When they leave Career Wardrobe, their heads are held high, and their voices are steady, strong, and full of that secret ingredient – hope.
