Empowering Women to Economic Independence

The approach for Dress for Success Quad Cities starts where many emergency or transitional programs leave off: targeting job-ready women with an interview scheduled. A third year of IWF funding will help further develop services to reach more women and improve outcomes-based programming and measurements. Our support, combined with other funds, will provide meals, recruitment, supplies, and operational costs for the Professional Women’s Group (PWG) program and Career Success Center to help women get a job, keep a job, and grow a career. Women who successfully complete the Professional Women’s Group (PWG) have up to a 70% chance at retaining their jobs.
