Working Wardrobes celebrates the grand opening of its new Career Success Center

Working Wardrobes, Orange County’s foremost career readiness nonprofit, announced that on Wednesday, September 30th, it will celebrate the grand opening of its new Career Success Center, which provides vital career development tools, resources, and training. The opening of the Career Success Center marks an amazing comeback after a devastating multi-million-dollar fire destroyed the Working Wardrobes headquarters in February.

Event Details:
What: Grand Opening of Working Wardrobes Career Success Center
Where: 2000 E McFadden Avenue, Suite 100 Santa Ana, CA 92705
When: Wednesday, September 30th, 9:00 A.M.
Who: Working Wardrobes Board and Staff leadership, State, County, and local business and nonprofit leaders, community volunteers, and donors

“While this is certainly Working Wardrobes’ comeback story, this is also a story of Orange County’s comeback, as we could not have built the Career Success Center without our wonderful local business and community partners, generous donors, and our incredible volunteers,” says Jerri Rosen, CEO and Founder of Working Wardrobes. “Even in our 30th year, our work is just beginning. The pandemic has stolen the livelihoods of so many thousands of men and women here in Orange County, and our mission is to put donations to work to help rebuild careers.”

The career success center offers clients a full menu of services, including career assessment, job coaching, hard and soft skills training, interview techniques, resume writing skills, and job search and placement.

“While we have helped veterans, domestic abuse survivors, and so many with barriers to employment get back on their feet over the last 30 years,” says Rosen. “we’re now seeing hard-working men and women who have been in the workforce for years in dire need of assistance now. We are rebuilding careers in our community, and to do that, we continue to be in need of volunteer and donor support.”

After the press conference and ribbon-cutting, the media is invited to take a tour and get b-roll and soundbites at workstations inside the Career Success Center.
