Suit Up! for Change at Hudson this Tuesday with Me!


UPDATE! We will except gently worn ladies business suits and jackets at the event this Tuesday. Please bring your items on a hanger!

Join me next Tuesday at Hudson for Suit Up! for Change. Founded in 1992, Suited for Change provides professional clothing and ongoing career and life skills education to low-income women to increase their employment and job retention potential and to contribute to their economic independence. Their services are available at no charge and by referral only to low-income women who have completed job readiness programs and are seeking employment.

Suited for Change is a founding member of The Women’s Alliance , a national organization of independent community-based “sister organizations” who provide professional attire, career skills training and related services to low-income women seeking employment.

Clients come from the District of Columbia , Maryland , and Northern Virginia and include homeless women, survivors of domestic violence, teen mothers, senior citizens, former offenders, and those who have overcome addiction. Suited for Change “suits” more than 100 women each month. Since their founding in 1992, Suited for Change has helped more than 13,000 area women transition into the workforce.
