The Veterans Clothing Program provides brand new clothing for veterans seeking employment and basic clothing when needed. Dignity U Wear prides itself on delivering appropriate clothing specific to the partner agencies’ programs and demographics. The Veterans Clothing Program has three components: Suits for Soldiers, Heroes to Work and Helping Homeless Heroes.
Suits for Soldiers
- 8.8% of veterans are unemployed
- For younger veterans, the number is even higher. 24.3% of veterans ages 18-24 are unemployed.
Our Suits for Soldiers-Suited for the Next Mission program is designed to support veterans returning to civilian employment who are working through educational and/or vocational training programs to better transition their military skills to a civilian work environment. Read more.
Heroes to Work
We recognize that not ever veteran needs a suit so Heroes to Work helps veterans who are underemployed or unemployed by supplying brand new work appropriate clothing – khakis, dress slacks, career shirts, ties, belts – that will assist in securing long-term financial stability for themselves and their families.
Helping Homeless Heroes
12% of the adult homeless population are veterans. We work to provide homeless veterans with basic necessities as they get back on their feet. Read more.
