Women entering, or re-entering, into the workforce often don’t have the appropriate attire for every day office wear nor interviews. Our Success Store solves this barrier to employment and provides an incentive for keeping students engaged and motivated throughout the course. Students “pay” for items in the store using their Success Dollars, money they earn through attendance, punctuality and volunteerism. Students get to treat themselves with money they won’t feel guilty about spending because no other store will accept our purple and pink Success Dollars.
The Success Store is expanding to become a resource for other social service agencies in Tarrant County. Just like our clients, clients from other organizations also don’t have the cloths needed to get and keep a job. Through a voucher system, agencies are able to refer their clients to our Success Store to receive two professional outfits and a pair of shoes.
Help us keep our store stocked with the needed assortment of sizes and items. Donate your own individual items or help organize a clothing drive at your place of employment, church or organization you belong to. If you, or an organization you belong to, would like to get involved with our Success Store call Ladder Alliance at 817.834.2100.
Here is a list of the various items in the Success Store:
- Blouses and sweaters
- Pants and skirts
