Women seeking employment in the Monroe and surrounding areas may receive free clothing and accessories, haircuts, styling, facials, and manicures with a voucher. The referring agencies can approve a woman for up to five outfits. In most cases, a woman may receive two outfits for a job interview an additional three more outfits once they’ve been hired.
A referring agency must verify that the woman is at least 16 years of age, is enrolled in a job search program, is considered to be either At-Risk or 200% below Federal Income standards.
After receiving a voucher, simply bring the referral form, along with a state issued picture ID such as a driver’s license to My Sister’s Closet during regular store hours to redeem it.
Clients should allow at least 1-2 hours to be assisted with clothing choices, and appointments are encouraged, though not necessary.
When available, simple tailoring can be provided, but please allow several days in advance of your interview if needed.
Clothing vouchers are valid for as long as you need to redeem the total number of allowable outfits. If you did not have enough time or we did not have what you needed, you may come back as many times as necessary until you have completely filled your voucher.
