Some of Suited for Success’s programs see clients by appointment and referral only. We work with over 135 local agencies that refer clients for our suiting, Career Center, and training programs. We also work with community partners on customized training programs to address unique constituent needs and schedules.

Approved agencies may download our referral form (updated February 2021) to start the appointment process for your client.
** Please note that our process has changed due to COVID-19. New processes are detailed below. We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring the safety of our clients, staff, and volunteers. **
Client referrals are required for the following services:
- Interview suitings: We provide one business interview outfit, according to our inventory. Experienced volunteers will work with each client to style a look that presents each individual’s best professional image. COVID-19 update: Our dressing rooms are currently closed, and additional clothing items may be given for sizing purposes.
- Employment suitings: We provide a few mix-and-match business separates to individuals starting new jobs. Clients who were previously referred for an interview suiting referral will need a new referral for employment suiting appointments. Clients should also bring confirmation of employment, such as offer letter, recent paystub, or recent schedule listing company/employer, employee name and date, to their appointment.
- Career Center: Clients can receive one-on-one assistance from experience volunteers with resumes, job search tips, technical assistance (email, LinkedIn), and mock interviews. COVID-19 update: The Career Center is currently closed. We have Virtual Career Center services available to the community, no referral needed. Request a Virtual Career Center appointment at http://bit.ly/SFSRequest.
Referrals are not required for training programs, workshops, or Virtual Career Center appointments.
To refer a client: Download our current referral form [PDF]. Completed forms should be emailed to Tranell Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our staff will contact you (the case manager/referrer) to set an appointment for your client. We do not contact clients directly. Due to social distancing, we have limited suiting appointments available, and will not accept walk-ins. To ensure clients can receive services before their scheduled interview, please included date/time of upcoming interviews in your email when submitting a referral.
