On Sunday, January 5th, the Dress for Success Little Black Fashion van pulled up to SBWCC for their 2nd event.  

They come once every 3 months, giving our rider population the opportunity to be dressed professionally.  

Participating inmates were required to have a job waiting for them after release or have an interview set up, some of which can be facilitated while still incarcerated.  

After completing their program classes and hopefully making changes in their thinking, South Boise ladies were able to picture themselves being successful and showing confidence to potential employers.  

Hope, laughter and even surprise abounded, as you can see in the photos.
