Dress for Success Quad Cities gets $10,000 grant

Dress for Success Quad Cities has been awarded a $10,000 grant to provide funding for the “Next Step to Success Project.”

“The goal of the project is to provide high-quality, reliable services delivered just in time as a low-resource woman faces a critical transition point — an interview and/or new job,” said Mandie Sanders, media contact. “Then, Dress for Success follows up with ongoing professional and career development so that the changes she has begun have a chance to take root and grow.”
