The mission of Dress for Success Indianapolis (DFS Indianapolis) is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
DFS Indianapolis has served over 17,000 local women by providing work attire, career placement services, and training to guide them toward employment, and ultimately economic independence. Through its Suits for Success Program (SFS), Professional Women’s Group (PWG), and the Career Development Center, DFS Indianapolis provides women with training along with the professional attire to gain and retain employment, and to propel to higher wage careers. Through its Mobile Services Program, DFS Indianapolis is able to meet women where they are located such as schools, churches, or community centers, or to provide transportation to the DFS Indianapolis Career Center. During the COVID 19 pandemic, these services are available in a contactless environment, or virtually.
