Uncommon Threads

Uncommon Threads’ mission is to use clothes and image as the tools for boosting women’s self-esteem, self-confidence and self-worth. Clients will be referred by social workers who work with domestic violence survivors and women in need. Clients will receive a private styling session with one of our “volunteer stylists”, where they will learn their best styles and colors and get advice on how to dress to project a positive image. They will get up to four complete outfits suitable for their lifestyle. Our goal is for them to leave the boutique feeling empowered, nurtured, beautiful and confident. We have major plans for the future including self-esteem workshops and mentoring!
