Frequently Asked Questions
We do our best to provide each SolutionsWear program participant with professional ensembles. In many cases, we are able to provide items such as belts, shoes, ties, scarves, jewelry, and handbags to enhance and complete their outfits. We assist participants in selecting garments that can be mixed and matched to create much more than five outfits.
If your organization pays for multiple participants at one time, in what is known as a spend down account you can pay as little as $25.00 per visit.
Your clients will be encouraged to and feel comfortable browsing for clothing much as they would in a traditional retail store. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be on hand to help your clients select flattering items that can be mixed and matched to create numerous outfits.
