Recognizing Hope Honors Career Wardrobe’s
Client Accomplishments, New Internship Graduates

(Philadelphia) – Career Wardrobe has been working to empower women for more than 20 years, and Recognizing Hope is an opportunity to appreciate their clients’ many achievements.
Katherine Gilmore Richardson, Chief of Staff to Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown and Nicole Cohen, a managing director from Accenture will speak to a group of honorees at the celebration, Sat., Dec. 9 from 9:30-noon at Accenture.

Some of the honorees at this year’s Recognizing Hope will be graduates of Career Wardrobe’s new Customer Service Internship Program. This new program offers an on-the-job customer service training in the Wardrobe Resale store to individuals that completed Lutheran Settlement House's National Retail Federation certificate program.

Each group of six interns works 20 hours per week for 12 weeks at The Wardrobe Resale store, building their skills in customer service, merchandising, dressing clients, and working the sales floor. One intern secured a new job before she even completed the internship.
Whether it’s completing a training program, finishing a degree, or getting a job, Career Wardrobe along with sponsor Accenture wants to highlight these clients’ accomplishments.

Career Wardrobe Executive Director Sheri Cole says, “We are excited to hold the Recognizing Hope event each year to encourage our clients to feel proud, appreciated, and motivated. In a journey to employment that involves so many ‘nos’ and setbacks, we are here to say ‘yes, you can do it!’”

Career Wardrobe is one of the nation’s largest independent organizations empowering women and men transitioning to work with professional clothing, job search support, and professional development. In the past 22 years, more than 80,000 individuals have transitioned from poverty, violence, or incarceration to employment and independence with support from Career Wardrobe. In 2016, Career Wardrobe expanded its successful Philadelphia model to the five county area surrounding Philadelphia including Delaware, Chester, Montgomery, Bucks, and Berks Counties, providing professional clothing to unemployed Pennsylvanians receiving public assistance benefits.
