At the Success Event, approximately 40 TLD volunteers – both attorneys and administrative staff – will work with Working Wardrobes’ clients onsite to help them select from the many “law suits” supplied by TLD. The 20 individuals selected to attend the event from Phoenix House, a nonprofit drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, will receive career guidance and personal grooming services to help boost confidence as they strive to get their lives back on track…”
