About us

Career Wardrobe is a Philadelphia-based nonprofit social enterprise that uses clothing and professional development to empower unemployed individuals to work.  In the past 20 years, we have assisted over 80,000 women on their journeys to work.

The Wardrobe Boutique is the cornerstone of our program and provides professional clothing to individuals in transition.  Job seekers can shop at no cost with a referral or for a small fee if they are not receiving government assistance.  In Philadelphia, we are also open to public where savvy shoppers can find great deals on women’s designer and contemporary clothing with all sales supporting our services. 

Gateway to Success provides professional development activities including resume review and interviewing skills workshops, job skills courses and Wardrobe Careers, a structured internship program that teaches customer service and retail skills.

All program services are open to the public either through a referral from a partner agency or with a small fee based on an individual's need.  Learn more at
