Dorsey Southern California is participating in the Second Annual Suits for a Cause clothing drive to support WHW (Women Helping Women/Men2Work). Suits for a Cause brings law firms and legal groups across Southern California together to help WHW further its important mission. The clothing drive will take place from June 1-30, 2012.
WHW is an Orange County non-profit with a simple, but incredibly important goal – to help men and women get and keep their jobs. The non-profit provides a business wardrobe to low-income individuals, and is dedicated to helping these men and women get jobs through resume assistance, interview skills training, networking workshops, computer training and various other programs focused on job placement. WHW empowers job seekers by helping them develop the skills they need to become economically self-sufficient.
WHW was started by two female legal professionals who were victims of domestic abuse. After surviving domestic abuse, they faced the daunting task of rebuilding their professional wardrobes to return to the workforce to support themselves and their children. Over the past two decades, WHW has grown by adding a men’s division and by expanding its focus to providing a full array of employment services including job placement, professional attire and image consulting. Dorsey Southern California is proud to support Suits for a Cause and to help engage the Orange County legal community to help WHW fulfill its vision.
