Career Gear

Samaritan Ministry is proud to offer career attire and other clothing to men and women in the Next Step Program (including STRIVE graduates) and in our larger community.

By scheduling appointments which allow time for select the right style and sizes, men and women work with staff to design an outfit that is appropriate for job interviews and the first day of work. Clothing and accessories are often a combination of new and donated items.

While we provide employment-related clothing to both women and men, we specialize in men’s attire, and often refer women to local organizations who specialize in women’s attire, such as Suited for Change and Dress for Success.
