Since 2003, Dress for Success Austin (DSFA) has supported and served over 16,000 women in Central Texas through referrals from 90+ nonprofit and government agencies. In these unprecedented times, DFSA has had to close its free clothing boutique and career center due to health concerns surrounding COVID-19. However, DFSA is continuing to make an impact by offering virtual career and image consulting services through a group of 300+ volunteers. With the national unemployment rate climbing each day, DFSA is seeing an increase in demand for women looking for work. In two weeks, it has booked more than 30 appointments and hopes to provide 20 units of service per week going forward. A recent survey of DFSA clients revealed: 43% are unemployed or on leave, 29% lost their job due to COVID-19, 52% have less than 1 month of expenses, 50% are worried about finances and housing security, and 78% are the primary caregiver In these tough times. Dress for Success Austin is committed to providing services and opportunities to help women establish a solid work history and permanently leave the cycle of poverty. Support extends far beyond the “suit” to a promise to each client of ongoing support and information as she enters and remains in the employment arena. This t-shirt fundraiser will help ensure the organization is financially stable now and in the future to continue providing career services for thousands of women in Central Texas.
