Dress for Success. A good fit for financially troubled women. – For …

Financial Coaching: Dress for Success. A good fit for financially troubled women.I was reminded this week about a Toronto charity that is doing something quite interesting, and altogether admirable. It is called Dress for Success, which has devoted itself to helping unemployed and financially troubled women look and feel good during one of life’s biggest make or break moments – namely, interviewing for a job.Actually, Dress for Success features a five-step process that greatly empowers women as they seek and undertake new employment opportunities.The process begins with what is called “interview suiting” wherein women in need receive for free two formal outfits to prepare for upcoming job interviews. Not only that, but volunteer stylists work with each woman to select clothing that serves the dual purpose of reflecting individual style while at the same time promoting a smart professional image.Now, if anyone out there thinks this sort of support sounds rather “decadent” insofar as charity work is concerned, I say think again Continue reading

We also come away from our experience outdoors feeling balanced. So it’s no wonder that an organization such as Street to Trail has been so successful in helping the homeless as well.I have to admire people like Paul Mackle – the man who founded Street to Trail, a non-profit organization that helps people living on the streets of Toronto find their sense of worth via natural settings and places. The organization, which Paul founded in 2000, allows homeless people to explore the natural world via hikes and canoe trips, building self-confidence and new supportive relationships. Natural settings such as parks and conservation areas are also peaceful spots – away from the noise and dreary, depressing concrete city – for helping to overcome addiction.The organization has helped many find a new path in their life, and at times has played the role of matchmaker!
