Empowering Women…to achieve success!
Imagine a woman entering the job market, perhaps for the first time without an appropriate business outfit or even a decent pair of shoes. Perhaps she has completed training classes and job readiness programs, but she simply does not own the clothing appropriate for the job she is seeking. The YWCA Career Closet can help.
Career Closet is a community resource for economically disadvantaged women who seek to gain and retain employment, advance their careers, and improve family stability.
Through Career Closet women receive free interviewing clothing, work appropriate attire, and may attend personal and professional development presentations to help empower them to achieve their goals.
More than 1500 women have received Career Closet services since 2005.
Please call us for an appointment. All clientele information is confidential.

Hastings YWCA helping women transition into the workforce
Finding a job can be hard, and adding a former prison sentence can make it even more difficult.
The Career Closet at the YWCA in Hastings gives women the tools to get a fresh start on life after months, and sometimes years, of unemployment.

We do the planning and preparation, offering healthier choices than fast food and eating out. Research has shown that adults and children underestimate calorie content often by large amounts. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, a study published in 2013 that the average restaurant caloric intake is 1,128.
YWCA Freezer Meals empower women to offer a healthy alternative for her family at a minimal cost! Each meal feeds 6 to 8 people.
