In March we had to pivot and mobilize quickly to introduce remote opportunities to ensure our clients receive the services and programs they need to succeed.

This weekend DFS Buffalo launched our mobile unit. A donated van transformed into a mini boutique. We will continue to provide our clients with appointments for in-person or virtual job interviews.

We are on the road to recovery!

We are seeing first hand how our clients are bearing the brunt of Covid-19.

I'm excited we are able to continue to do the work and service the women in our community...one suit at a time🙏🏽

#DFSBuffalo Recovery Phase

Over the past 4 months, DFS Buffalo was forced to pivot and work with our clients virtually. Not only were we dealing with the pandemic, we made the decision to temporarily board up our space during this time of civil unrest. It has been a challenging time financially for our organization.

We are on the road to recovery.

I look forward to the day we can service, connect and HUG our clients in person.
