Working Image provides clothing for women and girls in need. We don’t just build wardrobes, we help rebuild lives.
Established in 1999, Working Image serves Jefferson, Kitsap and Clallam Counties and is the only program of its kind on the greater Olympic Peninsula. When we began, we focused on dressing women for work. But over the years, we have expanded our program to also serve women who have survived domestic violence, natural disasters, or are homeless. Most recently, we have reached out to a more diverse population including female veterans who are returning to civilian life and women undergoing devastating and costly cancer treatment. These women don’t need business suits – they need clothes to meet life’s challenges.
“After my mastectomy, I never thought I could feel so good about the way I looked. I left with clothes that were not only comfortable, but colorful. Thank you, Working Image.” Jane Doe, client
Working Image was an all-volunteer organization until 2013, when we hired a paid part-time office manager. Approximately 30 volunteers continue to focus on client needs, outreach, fundraising, managing inventory and grant writing.
