About Bottomless Closet
Vision & Mission
Bottomless Closet envisions a time when all women overcome poverty and achieve self-sufficiency for themselves and their families.
Bottomless Closet’s mission is to be the connection that inspires and guides disadvantaged New York City women to enter the workforce and achieve success through a host of services and programming, including the selection of interview-appropriate attire, one-to-one resume review, interview coaching and a broad workshop curriculum that promotes professional development, financial management and personal enrichment.
Bottomless Closet, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, was established in 1999 by a group of founding volunteers in response to the welfare reform act and a 1996 New York Times article that spoke of the obstacles faced by women on public assistance in their search for work, including the need for appropriate interview clothing and the lack of self-confidence to present themselves in unfamiliar settings.
Who We Serve
Bottomless Closet serves disadvantaged New York City women poised to reenter the job market. Our clients come from diverse backgrounds and experiences including women on public assistance, victims of domestic violence, homelessness, and the formerly incarcerated. All are looking for work to support themselves and their families. All are struggling to make positive changes in their lives.
To date, the organization has had more than 30,000 client interactions in their effort to help women lift themselves out of poverty and build self-sufficient lives for themselves and their families.
