Suit Yourself

Referring Agencies

All clients served by Suit Yourself Inc are referred by pre-approved social service agencies, churches, educational institutions, non-profit organizations and government institutions. If your organization is interested in becoming a referring agency, please email for a Referring Agency Form. To qualify for services, a client must have a job interview scheduled or must be participating in a job search program or career fair.

Qualified clients receive a first- and second-interview outfit, and upon acceptance of a job offer, receive additional outfits. An outfit consists of an entire ensemble to make a positive impression (clothing, shoes and accessories). Clothing assistance can also be provided for jobs that require specific uniforms.
