  • Our services include: Suiting Services: Women are invited to visit Dress for Success Pittsburgh for attire to support their job search, interview, employment, job training, court appearance or other transition.They may select professional, business casual or industry specific attire, a pair of shoes, three personal care items and three professional accessories. Women who secure employment are invited to return for additional clothing and essential workwear, such as nonskid shoes and medical scrubs to bridge the gap to receiving their first paycheck.
