Clothes That Work is a grassroots non-profit that has been providing professional clothing, image counseling and training for job seekers in Montgomery County since 1998. More than 27,000 men, women, and independent teens have benefited from the services provided by Clothes That Work. Through the ongoing support of donors, funding partners, individuals, corporations and foundations we have been able to make a real difference in the lives of many people.
We partner with local organizations that refer clients in need of interview clothing to aid in the transition to self-sufficiency. In addition to providing interview appropriate clothing and training on how to dress for work, we also conduct seminars, give interviewing tips and coach on exhibiting appropriate professional behavior. By focusing on the skills our clients need to be competitive in the interview process, we help instill the confidence necessary to succeed.
Our visionary founders include Kym Yahn, Linda Lombard, Mary Colegate, Mary Sue Kessler, Helen Jones-Kelley, Paula MacIlwaine, Elaine Johnson, Carol Prewitt, Pat Rider, Bonnie Langdon, Pat Robinson, Lee Armstrong Lumpkin, Chris Olinsky, and Nita Yates.
