About Us

Who We Are


Suited for Change has been a constant and reliable member of our community for almost 30 years. Since 1992, we have served more than 29,000 local women.

We provide professional attire, coaching, and skills training to women in need who are seeking employment.

These women are referred to us by more than 120 partners in the DC region. Our network of referral partners includes job training and workforce development programs, transitional housing programs and halfway houses, shelters, and other programs serving domestic violence survivors, local and state government agencies, and faith-based organizations. All Suited for Change services are available at no cost.

As a result of the current pandemic, the women we serve are most directly impacted by Covid-19, and more than ever it is vital that we continue this important work in our community. 


Discover how you can donate clothes, support the organization financially, or get involved as a volunteer.

We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.

Our Mission

Equip women in need in our community on their path to financial independence by providing them with professional attire, coaching, and skills training.
