This one is important. I work for the Department of Employment Services, and all partners who help residents with employment training and skills development deserve our support! Thanks to Marlene Hall for sending this to me:
**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. Our 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.
