Suited For Success & Betty's Basement Thrift Store Program Director: Billie Richardson Relief Staff: Donna Campanella 27 West Park Street Park Street Mall, Butte 406-565-1296 firstname.lastname@example.org
Suited For Success is a private, non-profit umbrella organization operating with Safe Space, Inc. Suited For Success is committed to assisting clients as they work toward economic self-sufficiency. We collect clothing through volunteer organized clothing drives, professional organizations, area retailers and private donations. Volunteers sort and size the clothing and work with clients in providing them with two interview appropriate outfits. Once a client secures employment, Suited For Success then provides him/her with up to five additional work appropriate outfits.
Betty's Basement Thrift Store is a volunteer-operated thrift store connected with Suited For Success where the public may purchase items for a donation this is used to fund Safe Space and Suited for Success services.
Suited for School is a program ran by Suited for Success. Underprivileged children from low-income homes, homes with domestic violence, or other children referred to our agency, are able to obtain clothing and supplies for school. All items are based upon donations.
Information and confidential referrals for all Safe Space services are available to the public in this location as well.
Suited For Success donations are not charity. The professional clothing is earned by people making sincere efforts to enter the work force. Sometimes the only thing holding someone back from employment is a lack of appropriate clothing.
Suited for School benefits children by building confidence in their appearance to achieve academic success.
