Helping America's most vulnerable®

Working Wardrobe

The Working Wardrobe Program provides low-income and previously homeless men and women with interview clothes and coaching to give them confidence as they rejoin the workplace.

"It's more than just clothes," says program manager, Gail Berkes. "I see people light up with confidence as they chose the outfit they will interview in, a necklace or watch - something for that added touch. Someone believes in them and they begin to believe in themselves."

You can make a donation to the Working Wardrobe by dropping off your items at VOA’s Main Office at 214 Lake Avenue in Rochester or calling 585-647-1150 and asking for the Working Wardrobe Program Manager so she can arrange to pick up your items.
