Dress for Success Des Moines



About Us

Dress for Success Des Moines is a not-for-profit organization that offers services to help our clients enter the workforce and stay employed. Our clients come from diverse backgrounds, but have one thing in common: they are all seeking employment. Many come from low-income families and want to be independent from government assistance.

Clients are referred to the program by local area organizations, called referral agencies. These organizations are job placement agencies, shelters and social assistance groups. We are currently partnered with more than 60 agencies in the Des Moines community.

Dress for Success empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Since opening our doors in 2011, Dress for Success Des Moines has served over 3000 women who are supporting more than 6000 children in the Des Moines community.
