Who We Are

In 2014, My Sister's Closet began a journey to fulfill its mission in supporting women by providing free professional clothing to those in need.  Since that time and with the support and commitment of our donors, sponsors and volunteers, MSC has expanded to provide additional resources such as career enhancement workshops (Boot Camp) including an employers panel, resume writing support, mentoring & one-on-one career coaching, and networking events, which provide our clients with opportunities to connect with potential employers. 


It will be because of your support that we are able to make our vision a reality and more importantly, help change lives by equipping others with tools to successfully navigate their career goals!
