Phoenix Branch

For more than three years, Lisa Doromal (Laveen resident, devoted wife, mother of two, and self proclaimed "fashionista") has worked diligently to turn her dream into reality. Her efforts to create an upscale boutique space in South Phoenix, where disadvantaged women can come, and volunteers can help them, prepare for their job interviews and create a path to self-sufficiency, is coming to life!

A native of New Mexico, with a degree in Clothing Textiles and Fashion Merchandising, Lisa spent five years as a Merchandise Manager at JC Penney and other retail stores. After five years of being a stay-at-home mom, she wanted to find a way to marry her passions for fashion and helping women in her community. The answer was Dress for Success.

In 2009, Lisa established key partnerships with Chicanos Por La Causa, a state-wide organization that provides assistance to the disadvantaged, and the University of Phoenix, who will assist the affiliate with their post-retention programs for clients that have gone through the suiting program and are employed. The goal for the Phoenix affiliate is to create a beautiful space where clients can feel empowered to change their lives and the lives of their families.

"I believe we are all called to utilize our gifts and talents and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to not only work with wonderful volunteers but to help disadvantaged women in our community."
