About Us

Located in the heart of DuPage County, Illinois, Poised For Success® is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the Chicagoland area. Our mission is to provide, at no charge, beautiful interview and business appropriate clothing to women who are on assistance and in the job market through a social service agency referral program. Whether it’s a veteran having served our country and transitioning to the civilian workforce, a domestic violence survivor or a single mom. What they share is a desire to be self sufficient and financially independent through employment. There is a special transformation that takes place when we find the right clothes for the right person.

Our volunteers also assist clients in building self-esteem and identifying their power skills, as well as referrals to other local service organizations providing job-skills training and job placement. These services give our clients the self-confidence necessary to secure a job and move beyond the need for financial assistance.
