“Dress for Success Oregon is an anti-poverty nonprofit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. As over 85% of Dress for Success Oregon clients are single mothers, the organization provides low-income women the support and career development resources that help them not only get a job, but build a career, a life and the self-confidence to succeed, helping them transition off of government assistance to become financially-independent, self-sufficient citizens that can support their families.
