Dress for Success Corpus Christi

In May, 2013 Cathy Colomo Riojas and Anna Flores co-founded Dress for Success Corpus Christi to make the international organization's services and resources available to disadvantaged women in Corpus Christi, Texas.


We are a new affiliate of Dress for Success®, a world-wide non-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women and empowers them by providing professional attire, and support to become self sufficient.

Dress for Success Worldwide, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, was founded in New York City in 1997 as an answer to the needs of low-income women who are seeking employment and self-sufficiency. In the same year that Dress for Success was founded, the welfare overhaul set time restrictions for public assistance recipients, which in turn quickly forced heads of households into low wage jobs. Because of the rapid increase in the number of poor working women, they became an under-served segment of society and many lacked the skills and support to retain their employment. Our organization stems the underlying cause of cyclical poverty through grassroots programs that produce long-term solutions. Dress for Success has responded to the needs of the women that we serve by providing professional attire, career development tools, and a network of support to help women succeed in work and in life.

Over the past 15 years, Dress for Success has grown into a thriving international not-for-profit organization that has supported more than 600,000 disadvantaged women at over 120 affiliates worldwide.

Dress for Success Corpus Christi is in its start-up phase. We are looking for motivated individuals and volunteers to help in all capacities of the organization.
For more information on how to get involved email us at corpuschristi@dressforsuccesscc.org

To empower and enable disadvantaged women to be economically self-sufficient by providing proper work attire and access to a network of support and career related training services.
