Fundraiser For OKC Group Helping Women Released From Prison

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma leads the nation in the number of women incarcerated. Once they are released, many end up homeless with little job opportunities and need to re-learn job skills.

"Dress for Success" opened in May and provides clothing, interview and resume workshops for clients who are referred to them. Thursday night, the “More than a Dress Gala” will be held to raise money for the group.
