To our members, volunteers, partners and clients:
As some of you may have already heard, we suffered a water main break in our Career Closet over the weekend. Luckily most of our inventory was spared, but that is not to say we have not suffered damage. We are still actively working to dry our carpets and the walls, along with working to inventory what clothing and accessories we lost.
If you are a partner or client of ours: we are unfortunately closed for appointments until further notice. If you or your clients are experiencing an urgent need, we encourage you to explore and utilize other resources available including the Murphy Center, House of Neighborly Services, Christ Center Community Church, Vineyard Resource Center, etc. We will post an update as soon as we are able to accept appointments again.
If you are a donor: we are currently not accepting donations until we are able to begin work on repairs and assess what our true needs are. We will post updates as soon as we are able to resume our normal donation times.
If you are a member or volunteer: please be on the lookout in coming weeks for opportunities to help with the cleanup and restoration of our beautiful boutique.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and are working diligently to have any damage repaired so we can become operational and serve the women of Northern Colorado again as soon as possible!
With warmest regards,
The Junior League of Fort Collins Board of Directors

Career Closet Testimonials
Thank you to Mary Gilliland for writing an article in The Coloradoan about her experience with the Career Closet. Click here to read her story.
I have just gotten out of prison and was told that I may be able to get a nice outfit for interviews. I was blown away at how nice and extremely helpful and patient these ladies were to me. This experience was wonderful and they set me up all the way down to scarfs as accessories. I must admit I didn’t expect the professionalism that I received. They truly cared and love what they do. Thanks again for your time and the opportunity to use your services.

I wanted to say thank you so much for your help! I was a massage therapist and only wore workout clothes, basically! Now I have a job doing Outside Sales for a web company in Fort Collins and the clothing that I got during my hour at the Career Closet helped me close the deal and get the job! Thank you again for everything you do! I really appreciate you!
