Our mission is to provide disadvantaged women with the tools needed to obtain a career and gain financial independence. We support women who are in college, trade school, the work force, and military bound, as well as their families and local communities. From workshops to motivational speakers, we raise awareness, self esteem, and empower women. Taking our career wear recipients shopping for a professional look is the fun part, watching that same woman discover her self worth is the rewarding part. Professional & successful are related.
In existence for over 2 years, we are proud to disclose all of our recipients have taken the next steps to independent living. A 100% success rate.
By selling donated items on eBay we are able to take each recipient shopping for the garment that gives them the highest level of confidence. With a new look, they are able to see their potential!

The Anacostia Coordinating Council (ACC) is volunteer, membership consortium of organizations and individuals involved with the revitalization of Anacostia and its adjacent neighborhoods. Founded in 1983 to organize community support for getting the Anacostia Metro Station built, the ACC has expanded to address a large amount of issues that face the community. ACC Faith Leaders have recently become alarmed at the increase of violent crime and gang activity in the Washington Metropolitan Area, specifically in the East of the River neighborhoods of Wards 7 and 8. The tragedy of murder became somberly personal when Charnice Milton, a 27 year old Capital Community News journalist, was murdered. She lived, worked and worshiped in our East of the River neighborhoods. Although not the first and certainly, not the last, her death brought international awareness to the need for action and resolve among our leaders. ACC renamed its Public Safety Committee, The Open Heart Close Case Campaign, in honor of the fallen victims of unresolved homicides, missing persons cases and exploited child cases. As Faith Leaders, we are committed to changing the course of our communities and fighting the terror raged against us by thieves, murderers and those that seek discord among us. These are communities that have no borders to individuals that seek to spread their reign of terror.
