Many adults receive public assistance. The majority of these recipients are female single heads of households. Welfare legislation requires that many of these adults on public assistance enroll in job training programs and actively seek employment in order to continue their assistance during this period. As these individuals make the transition from dependence to self-sufficiency, the road they must travel is often bumpy. With the support of quality job-readiness training programs and key resources, the goal of “Draped with Confidence” is to assist clients in gaining the life management and technical skills needed to enter the competitive world of interviewing and to secure employment for a living wage.
Having the right skills and experience are critical factors in the employment process, but they are not the only ones that contribute to a person’s success.

A professional image that is appropriate to the industry and position are essential factors to securing a desired position and keeping it. “Draped with Confidence” is committed to helping individuals in need that are committed to move successfully along this path.
