“Some affiliates suit 2,000 clients in two to three years. We were affiliated in 199 and began suiting clients in 2000. We’ve grown each year to serve over 300 women a year,” Fletcher says.
Fletcher says the Peoria-affiliate is one of two Dress For Success programs in the state. She says women are referred by employment programs and social service agencies. Fletcher says they can then get a week’s worth of professional clothing from the program upon finding a job. Dress for Success is also graduating 10 women from it’s Financial Literacy program Tuesday.
