Career Retention Services
CWEE’s on-site boutique provides participants and alumni, both men and women, with current business professional attire. The boutique not only provides a valuable service to our participants and alumni, but also builds their self-esteem and gives them pride in their appearance so they may obtain long term employment.
All clothing, accessories and hygiene items in the boutique are donated and free for CWEE participants and alumni. CWEE receives donations from our business partners in the community. We work diligently to spread the word to provide our participants with the best selection of clothing possible. We are grateful to our business community partners. KeyBank, Oppenheimer Funds, Brighton Collectables, Zonta Club, Women’s Bar Association, BOMA, and Cabi are just a few of the businesses that support CWEE by organizing clothing drives.
"CWEE has helped me build my self-esteem. I feel worthy and inspired to do something positive everyday. Because of my wonderful experience at CWEE, I’m able to share it with others."

"I sit on many boards and councils but the endeavor that I am most passionate about is sitting on the Board of Directors for the Center for Work Education and Employment (CWEE). CWEE helps individuals receiving TANF get the education and skills necessary to obtain viable employment putting them in a position to eventually transition off of public assistance and hopefully out of poverty."
– Taryn Lewis,
Board of Directors
