Mission Statement

The mission of Dress for Success Lexington is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and the development tools to help them thrive in work and in life.

Description

Women come to Dress for Success Lexington by referral only from community-based social service agencies and non-profit organizations. An individual appointment is set up, and each woman is paired with a stylist consultant who selects a business suit for the job interview and introduces them to the Career Center. When she successfully lands the job, she returns for an "Employment Suiting" consisting of a week's worth of additional job appropriate attire.

The suit is just the beginning of how we help women thrive in work and life. Once a woman has been suited by Dress for Success Lexington, she is given access to the Career Center which offers critical tools essential to retaining her job and advancing in today’s highly competitive workforce. The women can take part in resume building and mock-interviews, and can find economic independence through relevant career workshops, one-on-one job coaching and computer access.

By providing a strong, committed network of professional men and women who are willing to share their insights and experiences, Dress for Success Lexington helps women secure and maintain gainful employment. We know that the positive impact a new job will create for a client not only affects her, but it makes a difference to her family and community as well. With your help, we will be able to serve more women in Lexington and the surrounding area.
