The Women’s Career Closet will be closed until further notice beginning November 16, 2020 due to COVID
Established in 1993, the Women’s Career Closet provides free, work-appropriate clothing to area women. Whether preparing for an interview or building a wardrobe for an existing job, women may visit the Women’s Career Closet up to four times per calendar year. There are approximately 2,000 visits to the Women’s Career Closet each year.
Who is eligible to visit the Women’s Career Closet?
The Women’s Career Closet is designed to serve women 18 years of age or older who are seeking employment, building a wardrobe for an existing job, or in need of clothing for court appointments. Generous donations from local individuals and organizations make this possible.
What type of apparel does the Women’s Career Closet carry?
The Women’s Career Closet carries primarily business casual and professional clothing (tops, pants, suits, dresses, coats, shoes/boots, gloves, scarves, belts, jewelry and handbags). Dressier items are available for special occasions in the YWCA’s Madison Street Boutique. Scrubs may be selected twice a year if required for an interview or a job. Items that do not meet the Women’s Career Closet criteria are used in our Madison Street Boutique or re-donated to other non-profit organizations in the greater Green Bay area. Some high-end fashion items may be consigned at local resale shops with the proceeds reinvested into the Women’s Career Closet operation.
