Dress for Success Palm Beaches

About Us

Dress for Success Palm Beaches is part of a global organization with nearly 150 affiliates in 25 countries. Since opening our doors in 2010, we have grown exponentially and have served over 5000 women in the Palm Beaches. With a poverty rate for women in our area that hovers near 20 percent, our services are requested regularly from over 100 partner referral agencies. 

Our Affiliate

Dress for Success Palm Beaches continuously strives to find innovative ways to best serve our clients. When our on-site job readiness programs and Career Center were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, we responded by launching all of our services virtually including one-on-one coaching and monthly support meetings with our Professional Women's Group. The empowerment of women, with an end goal of economic independence, informs everything we do. We are proud to once again be recipients of the GuideStar Seal of Approval. Please consider supporting the economic empowerment programs we offer to women in our community by joining our Circle of Impact, volunteering, attending an event, sponsoring a job readiness program, or by making a clothing or monetary donation.

Mission

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

Vision

Our vision is a world where women do not live in poverty. We strive for a world where all women are financially independent, are treated with dignity and respect and are directly impacting their lives and those of their families. We aspire to a world that fully harnesses the power of women and recognizes their role in economic sustainability. By supporting each other, we can reach a greater number of women and make our vision a reality.

Beliefs

Every woman has the right to realize her full potential and achieve financial independence in a more egalitarian world. We believe that with the proper education, tools, and action this world is possible. Poverty often affects women the most, and its effects on them and their families can be long-lasting. Therefore, addressing women’s needs is central to improving the quality of life for not only that woman but also her family, future generations, and her community. We believe that achieving gender equality is imperative to developing a sustainable and just world for all, which is possible by acknowledging the crucial role that women play in the world economy.We believe that by building up a woman’s agency and knowledge, better synergies between gender equality and economic sustainability are realized, enabling her to generate a long-term impact in both her private and public life.

Purpose

Our purpose is to offer long-lasting solutions that enable women to break the cycle of poverty. Dress for Success is part of a global movement for change, empowering women to obtain safer and better futures. We provide each client with professional attire to secure employment, but we are much more than simply a new outfit. Besides physically equipping our client with apparel and accessories, our programs furnish her with a confidence that she carries forever and the knowledge that she can actively define her life, the direction she takes, and what success means to he

Working Together

We are an ever-expanding network of affiliates who work together with referral agencies, volunteers, and companies across the world to make a real impact in women’s lives. By supporting each other, we can reach a greater number of women and make our vision a reality.
