Solutions At Work SolutionsWear Program

Each year Solutions At Work SolutionsWear Program provides interview-appropriate clothing and accessories to hundreds of homeless and low-income men and women who are enrolled in area job training programs. Please Note: SolutionsWear is by referral and appointment only. We offer appointments to social service agencies, but not directly to individuals. in order to receive service from SolutionsWear, a BPRRS Client must volunteer a few hours with SolutionsWear

What sort of business attire will my clients receive through SolutionsWear?

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.

Will my clients be able to browse for clothing or is their clothing selected by Solutions at Work staff?

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. Our staff will even show your clients how to tie a tie, if need be!

Unlike some other local programs that provide professional attire, SolutionsWear offers:

  • Flexible, year-round appointments. In most cases, we can accommodate urgent, last-minute requests for clothing.
  • Clothing for both men and women.
  • Five complete outfits for each program participant.
  • Clothing to active job seekers who do not yet have an interview scheduled.
  • Program access to people living anywhere. If your clients can get to our site in Cambridge, we will gladly serve them!

How many times can my clients receive professional attire through SolutionsWear?

In an effort to serve as many people as possible, people are only permitted to receive professional attire through SolutionsWear once.
