Esther’s Closet is more than a program that assists women who are transitioning back into the labor force. Women from various races and backgrounds come in with one thing in common…fear of not having what they need to survive. We watch these “diamonds in the rough” transform in front of us. Every one of our visitors are treated with dignity and respect. Most look unsure of themselves, appear insecure and are not dressed professionally.
Once they are greeted as welcomed guests and treated as VIP’s, they begin to come out of their shells and display beautiful smiles that the hardships of life have turned into scowls. After speaking with them about their interviews, goals, dreams and aspirations, we see them walk with more confidence, and sit straighter. They are all smiles.
