21 Sep Community Impact – Career Closet
The Junior League Career Closet is the signature project of the Junior League of Fort Collins, providing clothing appropriate for work and school to more than 300 women annually at no cost to them, in an effort to help clients achieve economic independence.
We are located in the basement of the Waypoint Bank Building at 2900 South College Save, Suite LB. Take the elevator down one level. Please note that we are open by appointment only.
Each Career Closet client receives an individualized, private and complimentary shopping experience in a boutique setting. Women are outfitted with professional clothing – as well as shoes and accessories – to prepare them for interviews, new jobs or daily wear. The focus is to provide flattering, appropriate clothing that inspires confidence and allows the client to present herself well.
The Career Closet is driven by volunteers who collect, organize and care for garments and serve as stylists for clients. Nearly all items donated.
To learn more about volunteer opportunities, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. -Diana, Career Closet Client
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! -Amy, Career Closet Client
It is my pleasure to compliment Junior League Career Closet on the excellent service they provide to me. I appreciate the staff’s attention to detail, great communication skills, and comforting demeanor and smiles that made my experience great! -Donna, Career Closet Client
