Susan S., Perfect Fit Client
Empowering Women with Style and Confidence since 2000
At the Perfect Fit for Working Women, a program of the YWCA Allentown, more than 700 women each year find the clothing and confidence necessary to start a job and grow a career.
At a woman’s first visit to the Perfect Fit, she is greeted by a personal stylist who helps her shop from our well-stocked boutique of women’s professional and business casual clothing to select the perfect outfit to ace her job interview.
Once she gets the job, our client returns for a full week’s worth of clothing perfectly suited to her new career and does not have to spend her first paycheck on a new work wardrobe.
More than clothing, we offer our clients professional development courses in areas including networking, effective communication, self-care in the workplace, and business basics, while serving each woman with the respect and dignity she deserves.
Since 2000, we have served more than 9500 women, all referred to us by more than 75 social service partners located throughout the Lehigh Valley.
Thank you for trusting the Perfect Fit with your clothing donations. Our community needs and appreciates them!
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have limited staff and volunteers on-site each day.
