Our Story

Established in 2001, Wear2Start originally focused on assisting unemployed or newly employed women in need of professional attire. Over the years, we’ve empowered thousands of women, boosting their confidence and employment prospects with a polished appearance. Recognizing an increased community need, we expanded our mandate in 2019 to serve a broader demographic.
