The Career Closet, a project of United Way Emerging Leaders, opened in February 2010 and serves men and women in need of clothes for interviewing or employment. Individuals may visit the Career Closet a couple times during their job hunt.

Their initial visit will help get them that "perfect outfit" for their next interview. After the get that new job, they are allowed to come back for a week's worth of clothing to get them started on their work wardrobe.
They can pick out the clothes and take them home for free.
