Draped with Confidence

Draped with Confidence” was founded by a group committed to the empowerment of adults with a specific focus on facilitating economic independence. The founders recognized that a critical gap existed between completion of the many job training programs and obtaining employment. “Draped with Confidence” was created to provide an opportunity for individuals entering or re-entering the workforce to not only “dress for success” with suitable business attire but also to enhance the skills necessary to gain and maintain employment over time.
