Dress for Success is a non-profit organization formed in 1997; the Columbus affiliate opened in 2007. Clients are referred to Dress by local non-profit, social service agencies in central Ohio. Dress for Success Columbus helps women gain economic independence by providing a professional wardrobe, a network of support, and career development tools to help women thrive in work and life. When a woman reaches out to us, we suit them with an interview-ready outfit, and then provide her with a week's worth of clothing once she is hired. We also have a career center for clients to utilize the computers and other career tools. Additionally, we have support for employed clients through a monthly Professional Women's Group meeting. We thrive via our volunteer support staff - volunteers act as personal shoppers, inventory managers, career center councilors and administrative support.
