Franciene is a mother, grandmother, college student and volunteer who is seeking employment in a medical or office setting. Franciene is embracing a ‘second chance’ at life. A chance she has created for herself. Franciene admits she has made a few poor choices. Her marriage turned abusive and over time her life spiraled further out of control. This is not the life Franciene imagined leading and she became determined to take back control.
With a record, a lack of education and no resources to present a professional image, she sought out the services of Clothes That Work. Clothes That Work provided Franciene with clothing, confidence building and image coaching to help her demonstrate to others that she is the right woman for the job. Franciene is hardworking, professional and personable.
She is now enrolled in college, volunteers 20 hours a week in a free clinic and is searching for paid employment in the medical field or an office setting.
Mon has been a member of the Dayton community since last December. He is a native of Bhutan who came to this country from Nepal as a part of a resettlement process. Mon is not unlike many people facing challenges; he too, is faced with limited resources and very little clothing.
Mon knew that in order to be successful he needed to embrace our culture. His journey toward greater economic self-sufficiency has included classes to improve his English and enrollment in a hospitality management program to improve his work readiness. Mon is a hard working young man with a strong work ethic to serve others.
His goal was to get a job in customer service and help support his family. When he graduated from the hospitality management program, Mon realized he needed an outfit to present the right image for a job in hospitality. Prior to interviewing for a position at UD, he came to Clothes That Work for help with finding the right clothing.
Mon was hired by UD and is now a working member of our community! He says Clothes That Work was vital to his success. He credits our services with helping him increase his confidence for the interview, and in his work life. Mon loves his new home in Dayton and plans to become more involved in this community for years to come.
