In alignment with the State of Ohio’s Stay at Home Order, requiring only essential services workers leave home, Dress for Success Columbus is suspending all in-person programming at this time. Staff will continue to work remotely and be available via email. Empower Hour, Professional Women’s Group, Interviewing for Success and Boss Girl will continue remotely.

With limited staff and volunteers throughout the next several weeks, we invite you to empower with us by donating clothing after April 6, 2020. To keep everyone safe, we are asking that you clean your donations according to care instructions. In addition, the March Volunteer Open House has been cancelled. We are thankful for your continued passion and love for the Dress for Success Columbus mission, as well as your trust and support. We greatly look forward to inviting you to once again empower with your sisters! We will keep you posted on the latest updates as soon as they become available.
