Making the right first impression is an important part of job seeking and interviewing. Recognizing this fact, the Working Women’s Clothing Closet provides participants with up to three complete professional outfits including accessories. This support not only enhances a participant’s marketability, but also increases her self-confidence.
Access to the Working Women’s Clothing Closet is by appointment only. Trained volunteers
spend approximately an hour and a half with each participant, acting as “personal shoppers” and helping to select appropriate and flattering professional clothing and accessories. The volunteers also share information on hygiene, grooming and image, and professional presentation. Individuals and businesses in West Michigan donate
gently used, high quality professional clothing and accessories to support this effort.
