Freeholders Honor “Dress For Success” At New Madison Headquarters

Dress for Success Northern New Jersey – 10 Counties celebrated its move to a newly refurbished space with a special ribbon cutting after being evacuated from their headquarters earlier this year due to a fire.

 DFS of Northern New Jersey is a chapter of a national nonprofit organization that focuses on offering long-lasting solutions to enable disadvantaged women to break the cycle of poverty and to help them achieve economic stability. They serve more than 1,400 women in Morris County and surrounding counties.

Earlier this year, a fire ravaged its operation in Madison, hampering the efforts of this group to help the many woman who call on its services.

“Dress for Success is continuing its life-changing work for women who need a leg up to succeed professionally and personally,’’ said Morris County Freeholder Deborah Smith, who attended the re-opening ceremony. “Their work has real impact in important ways, by making a difference in women’s lives and the lives of those around them.”
