Who We Are
Founded in 2009, Dress for Success Southern Nevada is the Las Vegas-area affiliate of the international non-profit that empowers women to achieve economic independence, enabling them to build a career and become self-sufficient.
In the Las Vegas valley, the organization assists job-ready women who are 16 years of age and older by referral only from a range of non-profit, government or community organizations. We help these women who are looking to find employment by providing professional attire, a network of support, and career development tools to help them thrive in work and life.
Dress for Success Southern Nevada opened its boutique in Las Vegas and suited its first client in December 2010. Since then, we have suited hundreds of women every year, including a record of 829 women in 2016. We provide each client with a career suit, cosmetics, footwear and accessories – and most importantly, positive reinforcement and a boost of confidence. After a client finds work, she can return to the boutique for a full week's worth of professional attire. The clothing that we provide to our clients symbolizes our faith in every woman's ability to succeed.
In addition to the suiting program, Dress for Success Southern Nevada offers additional support services through the Professional Women's Group (PWG), Mentoring to Achieve Personal Success (MAPS), and the Going Place Network (GPN) by Walmart. PWG provides newly hired clients a network of support, practical information, and inspiration to remain employed. MAPS offers both one-on-one and group mentoring programs. And GPN offers a 10-week workshop program and safety net of support to women who have participated in our Suiting Program but have not yet secured employment. Taken together, our programs have served nearly 4,500 women since the inception of the affiliate.
