A fire forced Dress for Success in Northern New Jersey to leave its home earlier this year, and officials said the Madison Community House is the perfect spot for the organization’s new base. 

“The newly expanded space will allow for many more women to build confidence and gain the interview skills they need in order to secure a good job, become financially independent, break the cycle of poverty and bring those successes back to their children and communities,” officials said. 

Dress for Success Northern New Jersey-10 Counties—known until recently as Dress for Success Morris County—has helped pave the way for more than 10,000 women to forge a new career path in the workforce by supplying business attire, skill-building programs, tools, mentoring and support. 

“The new affiliate name—Dress for Success Northern NJ-10 Counties—more accurately reflects the scope of responsibility that we have serving women in Bergen, Essex, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren (counties),” officials said.
