"In Her Shoes", produced and directed by Brandy Amstel won Best Short Documentary at the Trail Dance Film Festival this past weekend in Duncan, Oklahoma. The film features Betty Staehr who tells her personal story of rising from homelessness to giving back to the community that helped her during a difficult time in her life. The film also features Dress for Success Austin and its programs that are designed to help women enter and successfully remain in the workplace.
The mission of Dress for Success Austin is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Dress for Success Austin is committed to providing services and opportunities to help disadvantaged women establish a solid work history and permanently leave the cycle of poverty. Support extends far beyond the “suit” to a promise to each client of on-going support and information as she enters and remains in the employment arena.
