How We Work

Bottomless Closet offers an innovative approach to workforce preparation for disadvantaged New York City women transitioning from unemployment and public assistance to work. Comprehensive services include the selection of high quality interview attire, 1:1 resume review/preparation and interview coaching as well as a broad workshop curriculum that promotes professional development, financial management and personal enrichment.
Services and programming, offered through a personalized/one-on-one approach, help eradicate many of the barriers New York City women face in their search for, and retention of, employment.

Interview Coaching & Clothing

Women are referred through a network of partner organizations once they have a job interview scheduled; Bottomless Closet’s programming is designed to support the transition to work by offering services not routinely offered by job development agencies. Our goal is to enable and empower our clients so they may secure and maintain employment, overcome the challenges of poverty and ultimately reach self-sufficiency.

All clothing services and career programs are provided free of charge to clients.

Take a tour of our boutique on our YouTube channel! It was graciously redone by The Container Store in 2015. Read more about their generous grant here. For information about donating clothing, shoes, and accessories to Bottomless Closet, please visit our Clothing Donations page.


Educational Curriculum

Bottomless Closet has developed an extensive series of educational workshops designed to provide practical, accessible information on a range of topics including professional development, financial management and personal enrichment. We encourage women to participate in workshops to learn the concrete skills required to succeed professionally.
