MADISON, NJ - Dress for Success Morris County has recently established a mobile program to better serve women who lack means of transportation. Funding is needed to purchase a mobile van designated to serving clients in Morris, Essex, Union, Middlesex, Somerset, Sussex, Warren and Passaic counties.

Clients of Dress for Success Morris County have only one wish this holiday season- to have the ability to utilize services provided to them by this organization, to aid in the finding of a secure job position. Since the establishment of the mobile program, the service has been operated from a personal vehicle owned by a devoted employee. Due to the success of the mobile program thus far, purchasing a unit dedicated to the mobile services is necessary to help broaden the reach of the program.

“Over 900 women have benefited from the mobile unit program. Many women are still in need of mobile services.” said Stefanie Conley, Executive Director, at Dress for Success Morris County. “Purchasing a unit dedicated to mobile services will allow us to provide more women the assistance they deserve.”

Dress for Success Morris County provides career development services and business attire to women in need. The mobile program was established to better serve those who cannot afford a means of transportation.
