Suits for Success

suits for success 2020 (2)


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 will be relaunched, with Jada Williams of AgedOutt taking the lead on storage space and suits distribution. The suits will be shared throughout the year in Columbus and paired with the career planning portion of the AgedOutt program.The suits can also be made available to foster care youth from all over Ohio during the annual statewide foster youth conference.
