The Dress to Succeed LLC. Celebrates its latest expansion with the grand opening of its showroom location at the Trumbull Correctional Institution 5701 Burnett Road Leavittsburg, OH 44430
Elder Rose Carter, founder and director of the ministry; Lola Simmons, executive director of the Home for Good Re-entry Resource Referral Center; Warren Charmaine Bracy cut the ribbon on Monday June 27, 2017 for the latest Men’s Show case style showroom. It is located in the Visitors Area of the Institution.
The ministry has been dedicated to providing donated clothes, shoes and other accessories for the Valley, with an emphasis on people returning from prison, since 2010. Carter said this addition further helps the goal of providing something for people who need it the most.
“We’re not just handing you something. We want you to have dignity,” Carter said.
Since the ministry’s relocation in August to St. John Episcopal Church on Wick Avenue, it has dressed 400 people as well as another 150 men since its expansion at the Ohio State Penitentiary in October and over 50 men and women at CCA.
