11:40 am
11:41 am
hey, when you look your best, you feel your best. and that's an important key to success. and fantastic organization career wardrobe has been giving
11:42 am
women hope and helping them get a new start in life for 21 years now, and they're now helping men to do the same. they need your assistance to keep their mission going. sherry is the executive director of career wardrobe who has its annual auction and cocktail reception next week. thank you for coming back. tell us about the organization and tell us who you serve. >> sure. well, you know us as serving low-income women getting back in the work force, most of whom are transferring from welfare to work. this past year, woo were excited to extend our services to men. now we're helping both men and women with the professional look they need to get back in the work force or in the work force for the first time. also helping teens transitioning, maybe not going to college. >> what point did you decide? how many years have you been doing this? >> 21 years. >> you had to go 20 years before you decided, we should bring men
11:43 am
in need of wardrobe? >> absolutely. it's something that really we were pushed by the women we served to do. because a lot of how career wardrobe works, most of the people who get our services are referred through a job training program. they're involved in the social safety net in some way because they're living in poverty and need help to get back in the work force. they were going home and telling their brothers and their husbands and their sons, and they were like, wait a minute, what about? and literally, it was something mundane as not having support to do men as well as women, and to outfit boat. in september, we moved to the corner of 19th and spring garden where we had a resale store for about five years. we serve men on the top floor and women through the boutique. >> you have been in existence for decades. you must have some great success stories over the years. share one with us. >> oh, wow.
11:44 am
you, one of my favorite success stories is when we get to see women who come in and they are in job training programs so they need to do community service. so they'll intern with us, and we have actually hired several of those women who now are on staff working and helping everyone. yeah. you know, so they're always my go-to. there's a woman who's on our board now who came in as a client, andrea is her name. i have been able to see her grow from being a client and naughty having the confidence to know where she was going to go next in life to through a series of jobs, her son was a baby when she came to us and now he's graduating. so it's really great to see women's lives really transformed with something as simple as getting that first job. i mean, that is key. >> we work in television, so we deal with consultants all the time about what color we wear, what looks best. but we sometimes can take for granted that somebody who is
11:45 am
just out there trying to get that first job, they may not even have a sport jacket or tie or dress or skirt that they could wear that would make them look presentable. >> absolutely. when we started the men's program about a year ago, we started it out of our old space and we had maybe 100 square feet to devote to guys. we went, okay, i can't ask you, vai, to give me your entire wardrobe, so we're calling it make it work, because we thought about what does a man need to really look professional and feel professional? so a woman might need everything. i might need the jewelry and the shoes and everything, but what makes you feel more professional? it's that tie that you have on and the collared shirt. and so we started with guys with the waist up. if we can give you a tie and a collared shirt and a nice blazer, you can wear even a nice pair of jeans or khaki pants and look the part. and that's really about what career wardrobe is doing. >> most employers will say he's really trying. he has the requisite skills and
