Dress for Success Houston has been addressing the needs of women in the Greater Houston area for the past 20 years. Our purpose is to offer long-lasting solutions that enable women to break the cycle of poverty. Dress for Success Houston 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, and we are about much more than simply a new outfit. Besides physically equipping the 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 her. In addition to suiting we offer pre-employment classes, career education and programs dedicated to transitioning women veterans to the civilian workforce.
