Imagine looking for a job or returning to the workforce without appropriate clothes. If clothes make the man, then they are equally important to women and that is where Career Dress begins. The Women’s Fund has supported The Career Dress Boutique since 2004 with grants to Pump it Up, BRA-Vo, Essentials and most recently Your New Job Starts Here. Whether its shoes and purses, under garments or outerwear The Women’s Fund is committed to helping women prepare for their future. The volunteers at Career Dress would like to acknowledge and thank The Women’s Fund for its generous grant. The monies received went towards the purchase of brand new “plus sized” clothing for our guests who are embarking on interviews or beginning employment. Career Dress is committed to promoting the economic independence of low income women residing in Oakland County. With your support, our volunteers have assisted over 3,800 women change their lives with a change of clothing.
