Potential Me, a nonprofit organization headquartered in Port Covington, is dedicated to supporting disadvantaged women in Baltimore by providing clothing for job interviews and hosting workshops to help women build confidence, financial independence and self-esteem. By hosting small focus groups, workshops and seminars, networking opportunities, leadership building and literacy courses, as well as programs for “soft skills” training and mock interviews, the organization aims to empower women.
The organization recently teamed up with Penn North Recovery and their employment specialists for a Women’s Professional Wear Giveaway event on January 29, 2018, where they set a personal record of dressing over 50 women for success in just four hours.
Potential Me Executive Director Kimberly Klacik said, “It was truly rewarding seeing so many women smiling, excited…Potential Me would not be able to house so many suits or accomplish our mission if it weren’t for the space gifted by Sagamore Development in Port Covington.”
Thank you to Councilman Leon Pinkett for lending his time, volunteers like Corey Winfield from the Safe Streets initiative in Sandtown-Winchester and to the Under Armour Culture Club for Women for donating various sizes and clothes for the giveaway.
Klacik continued to say, “We have a 100% success rate; all of our recipients get the job, and many are continuing their education with their newfound confidence. A confident woman can do anything.”
