Board Chair, Karen Degenhart, states, “We are excited to welcome Liz and introduce her to our clients, supporters and volunteers. I know she is looking forward to recharging existing relationships as well as forging new ones within the community to facilitate the organization's growth and continued positive impact within the South Central PA community.”
A Connecticut native, Liz has lived all over the country – from North Carolina and California, to Texas and Oklahoma City and feels that one of her strengths is her ability to communicate with and connect to people from all walks of life. She currently lives near Harrisburg with her 18-year-old daughter - a budding and talented writer, and their beast of a cat.
Of her new post, Liz states, "I am humbled by the faith placed in me by the board of directors and the wonderful staff at Suits to Careers, Inc. My passion has always been tied to missions which benefit and empower women, children, and populations at risk of not realizing their human potential. The work being done within this organization is outstanding, and my goal is to simply steer a steady course and grow our potential so that we may serve more clients annually, in more varied ways while engaging the community exponentially."
Please join us in welcoming Liz to the team!

On August 28, Mayor Papenfuse visited Suits to Careers, Inc.'s new men's suiting program, Tied to Success.
The Mayor received a tour of the Dress for Success South Central PA boutique, the recently finished Tied to Success men's suite, and the new inventory donation center.
The mayor’s visit followed Tied to Success's opening day, August 27, which saw the suiting of its first two veteran clients.
The entrance to the men’s suite is located on the side of the 29 S. 10th Street building, under a red awning (donated by GT Watts), just past the parking sign. Inside are racks of shoes, shirts, sports jackets, suits, and pressed pants, along with a wall of ties.
The 2014 class of Leadership York program’s successful project resulted in the donation of 100s of personal care items. The items, which include shaving cream, soap, hair products, and mouthwash, are available for our clients.
The Mayor expressed his support and said he was “very impressed” with the Tied to Success program. He was also very interested to learn about the new RFID inventory tracking system, which is active in both the Tied to Success men’s suite and the Dress for Success South Central PA women’s boutique.
Mayor Papenfuse was a welcome presence in the building, and everyone was pleased with his enthusiasm for our new program.
