“They told us we could succeed at anything if we put our mind to it."
ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA - With the help of grants from the Opus Community Foundation and other donors, Working Wardrobes helps 5,000 people a year confidently enter the workforce and achieve self-sufficiency.
With a new shirt, suit, and shoes, they went from “down on their luck” to “top of the world.” They employed their gifts of clothing to re-enter the working world. Working Wardrobes worked wonders.
Their work doesn’t end there. The organization, which has been serving the community since the early 1990s, also provides career training and job-placement assistance in an environment of dignity and respect. Their clients go from Skid Row to suit and tie; from welfare to work; and from homeless to hopeful.
