Dress for Success Peoria helps 2,000th client
“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.
