SUITS FOR SUCCESS
Suits for Success provides professional attire to current and former foster youth who are preparing to enter the workforce.
This program was established in 2011 by the Ohio State Bar Foundation and Ohio foster care alumni, with support from other valued organizations such as ODJFS and UMCH. There was a hiatus between 2017-2019, due to lack of storage space.
In 2020, this program was relaunched, with Cloe Cooper and Jaye Turner taking the lead on storage space and suits distribution. Suits will be shared throughout the year in Columbus and made available to foster care youth from all over Ohio during annual statewide foster youth conferences.
