Your Support Does Make a Difference! No donation is too small to help women in need! 

Our clients express best what Poised For Success is all about! 


"I am deeply thankful to PFS. All my clothing was destroyed with the exception of three outfits I had for work and the clothes
I escaped wi
th on my back. 

The experience was so overwhelming that immediately afterwards, I drove to the nearest park and just cried tears of joy for almost an hour. That following Monday, I wore the first outfit to work and I received so many compliments. I felt amazing! I was glowing! Something in my inner spirit changed! 

I can honestly say that for the first time in my life I felt beautiful! I felt like I was worth something! I have the desire and confidence now to succeed. What you do for women like me is an amazing gift and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. My spirit thanks you!"

Welcome to Poised For Success®

Poised For Success promotes economic self-sufficiency in women by providing business clothing and referrals for career training to women on financial assistance. Our clients struggle with the emotional roller coaster of being qualified for a position, but have no resume, no interviewing experience, and no clothes for either an interview or to wear once hired. Poised For Success is dedicated to helping that woman – and every woman like her – make her appearance enhance her opportunities, not detract from them. We provide free business clothing to women. We accept donations of gently used womens business clothing and accessories.
