Dress for Success helps women who are trying to enter the work force by helping them dress properly for interviews and for their new jobs. Women can also get ongoing support.
Dress for Success reported a 61-percent jump this March over last March in the number of clients referred to it by unemployment benefits offices. And 10 percent more of its clients come with some post-high-school education.
