Dress for Success moves into new Northwest D.C. location

The D.C. chapter of Dress for Success moved into its new digs Friday, five months after the non-profit organization in October closed its doors after having to find a new office space.

The program, which helps women polish their job and interview skills and write résumés and that outfits them in suits, shoes, jewelry, blouses and even makeup, moved into a larger, 3,000-square-foot facility at 7826 Eastern Ave NW, after its lease on its 1,850-square-foot location on Q Street NE ended.

Next month, the program will also once again begin accepting donations for women reentering the workforce after having to suspend acceptance while it searched for a new facility.
