Kathleen’s Closet helps unemployed and underemployed womxn by providing no-cost professional attire to womxn seeking employment and those just starting a job.
We work with womxn to create not only an interview outfit, but also supply the pieces to mix and match to create a foundation for their professional wardrobe. But it is more than a pair of shoes and a nice shirt. Our goal is to ensure womxn have the skills, opportunities and resources to move beyond minimum wage and experience financial stability. This means that Kathleen’s Closet also serves as a hands-on job-training program for participants in the Economic Empowerment Program (EEP). Our EEP trainees and staff provide this essential service.
