Dress for Success program receives $1,000 grant

Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter is pleased to announce it has recently been awarded a $1,000 grant from Colonial Life to help fund its Dress for Success program. The Dress for Success program will provide teen residents of Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter with necessary resources needed for job interviews, college interviews and military recruitment meetings. We’re thrilled to be able to provide our kids with the essential tools and skills for success. We want the teens at the shelter to feel confident and prepared for their future endeavors.

Each teen will receive at least one business outfit and pair of dress shoes. The staff at Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter will help the teens build their resumes and prepare them for their interviews.

Palmetto Place Children’s shelter is open 24 hours each day of the year with medical and mental health care, crisis adjustment/transitional counseling, after school tutoring and recreational and social activities in addition to food, clothing and shelter. We would not be able to provide any of these resources without volunteers, donations and grants.
