Not Your Average Clothing Program

Uncommon Threads provides an innovative outside-in/inside-out approach to helping low-income women see and feel their true potential by using clothing and image as tools for boosting self-esteem and self-worth. For when a woman views herself as strong and confident, she can move forward.

We offer a variety of services and programs to help women look and feel their best. By combining clothing and styling services with positive empowerment skill-building, we help women improve their outer appearance and shift inner self-talk. Because when a woman views herself as strong and capable, she can move  forward and make positive life changes for herself and those around her.  

 

Here at Uncommon Threads, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 2016, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success by the number of women whose lives we've had the opportunity to impact in a meaningful way. Clients are referred into Uncommon Threads through local social services agencies and do not have to be working to access services. Many of our clients are domestic violence survivors, cancer patients, disabled and female veterans.

Uncommon Threads touches the lives of more than 1,200 low-income women each year through the following empowerment programs and services:

  • Self-esteem Styling

  • ​Workforce Styling 

  • Women’s Empowerment Center

  • Bundle Up & Emergency Clothing

  • Client Clothing Sales
