Mission

Wardrobe for Opportunity works in partnership with the community to assist low-income professionals in their efforts to Find a Job, Keep a Job and Build a Career.

What We Do

What makes WFO distinct in the workforce development arena is our focus on helping people get out of the old, 'find a job - any job' game. We know that most people are extremely hardworking and will thrive when they have access to living wage jobs and the tools to navigate up in the workplace. We want to see poverty end, so we avoid the common mistake of assuming that people living in poverty create the problem. We understand that poverty is both structural and personal.

So, we offer clients a comprehensive professional package that begins with professional attire, moves through to introductions to the Bay Area's top employers, and goes on to long-term career strategy training and coaching.

90% of clients to complete our full program report a high rate of economic self-sufficiency 3 years out.

Poverty can end. You can help.
