Offering free, business-appropriate attire to women experiencing homelessness in need of clothing for interviews or new jobs.

YWCA has three unique clothing banks offering free, business-appropriate attire to women experiencing homelessness in need of clothing for interviews or new jobs. We accept office-appropriate clothes, accessories (hand bags, scarves, umbrellas), and shoes, and have a specific need for large sizes. Please make sure that all donated clothing is dry-cleaned and in good condition.

Each clothing bank location is staffed by volunteers. If you would like to volunteer and empower women to help them make a good impression, contact volunteer@ywcaworks.org.

How it works

The Working Wardrobe location in Redmond operates on a voucher system. Counselors or case managers refer clients to receive free, work-appropriate clothing. Clients can redeem their vouchers for clothing at the Redmond Working Wardrobe.

Everett Working Wardrobe is open Tuesdays and Thursdays, by appointment only. Clients should call in advance to schedule an appointment. No income verification or voucher needed. Up to 4 visits allowed per year.

Donations

Individuals and groups in our community donate all of the clothing in the Working Wardrobe. In addition, some retail stores occasionally donate surplus supplies of nylons, cosmetics and other items. YWCA greatly appreciates all donations. At times, however, we receive more clothing donations than we can use or store. Please call the locations listed in advance to see if donations are being accepted and what items are currently needed.
