^^^^^ Change in Donation Procedure ^^^^^

The Right Step

The right clothes can make a world of difference in getting a job and stabilizing life. BestFootForward™ at Julia West House provides appropriate apparel for men seeking or starting a job that requires suits or business casual attire. We have suits, blazers, slacks, shirts, ties, belts, shoes and dress socks. No jeans, no work boots, no sweats. There are many clothing closets in town that can supply those items.

Referrals and Fittings

There is no charge for the clothing. Each man makes an appointment after his job counselor submits a referral. Each appointment is 30 minutes to allow time for Julia West staff to assist in selecting the right wardrobe. We have appointments from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday.


All our clothes are donations from individuals. If you have business clothing you no longer need, we’d love to outfit a man who is committed to making a better tomorrow for his family and himself. We are open for donations from 9:00 to 4:30, Monday through Thursday. Please call to tell us you are coming and we will prepare a receipt and be ready to accept your donations.
