Ready for Success (RFS) was founded as a community outreach project of Trinity Church in 1997. RFS was so successful that it was moved under the umbrella of Episcopal Community Services (ECS) in Minneapolis in 2001 and is now under the auspices of Project for Pride in Living. Since 2001, RFS has served more than 5500 low-income women and men entering or returning to the workplace. RFS provides new or gently used professional clothing and accessories suitable for job interviews and the workplace.
Trinity Church parishioners remain deeply involved in RFS that constantly welcomes new volunteers from Trinity and from all over the Twin Cities metro area. Ready for Success is unique from other clothing programs or ministries in many ways, offering: Individual appointments with personal shoppers for each client, accessories and personal care items. Return visits to build a seasonal wardrobe. Trinity Church serves as a clothing drop site.
