Client Services

Referral Partners

For many New York women, transitioning into the workforce is wrought with challenges that they are often minimally prepared to face. These include learning to dress for a professional setting, anticipating questions in job interviews and balancing the demands of work and home.

If you are an employment training and/or job readiness provider, and are interested in referring your job-ready clients (those who have an interview scheduled) to Bottomless Closet for clothing, interview preparation, and other services, please follow the steps below:

1)  Complete the Application and Agreement below and return to Crismelly CasoProgram Coordinator; and

2)  Register for and attend a Referral Partner Orientation

Please note: All individuals who make referrals to Bottomless Closet must have attended orientation. It is recommended that each Referral Partner designate at least one primary and one secondary contact person for referrals. There is no limit to the number of individuals who can make referrals from any one site.

“I didn’t think I would find something here because everywhere else, there aren’t a lot of plus-size clothes. When I came here and I saw the blazer and the pants that were presented to me, and the shoes, I was really happy. Everything was nice and professional looking. That was surprising to me, so I really liked that.”
