Wardrobers Are Perfect
Wardrobers are a favorite to us at Beautify the Meek. The versatile wear that one can get out these suits are just awesome. We welcome ALL professional and casual dress to get our clients into the job market and to maintain their marketability.
Wardrobers happen to be our favorite because just with almost little effort new looks can emerge. Wardrobers come with a jacket, pant, skirt, and sometimes the designer throws in the added flare of a scarf. Now that takes the suit to a whole new level. Now add the classic white cotton button down shirt and the impressionable image of a confident woman emerges. When we say classic white cotton button down we are not talking about your dad or husband's shirt, we are talking about the shirt that acommodates your figure and caresses your body in a ladylike manner. Now add one, two or even a third shell in the mix with the classic pearl earrings and necklace.... a wardrobe capsule is created and now from one suit emerges several looks that are professional and merits thumbs up from your employer or interviewer while remaining cost effective. We always suggest black, navy, grey/gray, or navy black for job interviews. We also suggest the classic white cotton button down shirt as well as classy shells that does not show much flesh. We advise white shells, off white, shades of red and blue shells that add a hint of color, and some coral colors as well.
Of course we welcome all professional and casual dress clothing yet if you desire purchase the wardrobers, they can be found at JCPenny, Ross, TJMaxx and other fine retailers. JCPenny usually have them in stock and they can be ordered in the store or online (http://www.jcpenny.com ).

Laptops, Computers, Computer Software , & Computer Based Training
11 Laptops & 4 Desktops Needed
We serve battered, under-served, and disenfranchised women and teens. We are excited because lives are being impacted and changed for the better. Women, teens, their children are all being impacted. We are seeking laptops to operate more efficiently with the growth of our clientele and the progress so many are making.
We aide our clients to advance in skills for jobs, job advancements, interviewing, image, business etiquette, and several tools that not only change their lives but their children's lives. We have gotten several tutorials, job skill DVDS, and classes to help our clients.
We have had certain clients which have a unique need for computers or laptops which they don't have access to. For example: we will call this lady Joan. Joan is a teacher who has 3 children. Her state will pay her more money if she learns Spanish and fills one of the bi-Lingual positions they have available. Joan really needs this extra boost in her pay because she has left her abusive mate. We have supplied her with the course data but in a shelter with no or little transportation, no computers, no printers, no liberal access to anything she cannot get to a computer to use our DVD program. With the help of the laptop loaner program. She was able to watch the entire DVD course and master her test and receive the extra pay.
Another example, we will call this lady Arthea. She tries to help her children with their homework. She cannot go to a public library to use their computer. Everything is closed by the time she gets home. Arthea needs the income to support herself and her . Arthea just received her GED and has 4 kids. She has been abused for over 27 years. Arthea is taking a HVAC DVD course we have provided. It comes with the HVAC test tools. She works long hours at an apartment complex and doesn't want to be at the mercy of any system nor does she want a lifestyle of abuse. To have a loaned laptop she can do the training she needs at her convenience as well as help her children with their needed assignements.
We are accomplishing great outcomes with our laptop loaner programs so people like our examples or scenarios given can have an opportunity to change their lives - their family's lives. Continued assistance like this will help us to serve our clients more effectively, efficiently, and assist in brand new areas. Please help! We need projectors, projector cables, a couple of portable screen, and a very powerful camera to document our work and some crisis situations.
