Is a woman's future hanging in your closet?

CW BannerCareer Wardrobe's mission is to empower women in transition by providing programs that inspire the confidence necessary to achieve self-sufficiency and pursue a productive career. We do this by providing professional work attire, educational programs, and networking tools and opportunities.
Career Wardrobe is the nation’s largest independent, community-based nonprofit organization serving women transitioning into the workforce by providing professional attire. Since 1995, Career Wardrobe has assisted nearly 75,000 women by inspiring the confidence necessary to achieve independence.
Career Wardrobe owns and operates The Wardrobe Boutique, which sells recycled clothing to benefit our programs and services. Located at the corner of 19th St. and Spring Garden St. in Philadelphia, The Wardrobe Boutique offers everything from formal to casual clothing at discounted prices. Donations that are not suitable for Career Wardrobe’s programs are sold at The Wardrobe Boutique to women, including former clients who are now working.
