Did you know? 60% of interview rejections are based on appearance and grooming.
Fitting Futures™ is a Junior League of Evanston-North Shore community outreach effort providing support for low-income women in job training programs. Fitting Futures seeks to break the cycle of poverty and help women get back to work by providing a personal clothing and job readiness session and interview-appropriate attire at no cost; simultaneously boosting confidence and building careers.
Fitting Futures is the only employment attire service on the North Shore, offering direct help to local women striving for economic self-sufficiency. Most clients are single mothers forced to choose between providing food and shelter for their children or having interview-appropriate clothing.
Every month we are proud to provide women in job training programs of local social service agencies with work-appropriate clothing. Along with a bag of hand-selected clothing and accessories, each woman receives tips on interviewing and resume writing. Sessions are held at the Junior League Thrift House, 920 Chicago Avenue, Evanston.
Clients are referred to Fitting Futures from local agencies that provide job training programs including the Evanston Youth Job Center, Howard Area Community Center, and the Community and Economic Development Association of Cook County, Incorporated (CEDA).
