What is Ready for Success?
Ready for Success provides low-income women and men with gently-used and new professional clothing, accessories, and new personal care items suitable for job interviews and the workplace.

Ready for Success clients receive professional clothing, shoes, seasonal outerwear, personal care items, and accessories. Clients also receive the assistance of a Volunteer Personal Shopper during their scheduled appointment that assists them in building a professional wardrobe.
