Since 2007, we have provided professional male attire and workforce training to thousands of central Indiana residents. Our operations are growing, and we have expanded our services to align with community and employer needs throughout Indiana. We are pleased to announce our name change from Danny's Closet of Hope to Success Wear. Our new name reflects our new direction.
The mission of Success Wear is to assist individuals in achieving economic independence by providing professional male attire and workforce development tools to help them thrive in their families and communities. This name change allows us to incorporate the mission of Success Wear into our programs and activities. We look forward to serving you by offering a statewide presence under our new name.

For the past 12 years, we have helped thousands of individuals move from unemployment to being gainfully employed and self-sufficient. We work with a diverse network of nonprofit, community-based, and government agencies – including veterans affairs, homeless shelters, educational institutions, work-release, job training, immigration services, and many others – to refer individuals to our program after they complete a skill development program or secure a job interview. Suit appointments are only scheduled through our referral partners.
Our career readiness events are tailored for high school students and include hands-on community service activities, educational games, and motivational guest speakers. Students learn about health careers, resume writing, practice interviewing, and complete activities that provide soft skills training needed in the workplace, such as teamwork, communications and problem-solving. Students complete a career assessment and learn how their strengths can contribute to workplace success.
Our high school service-learning program is designed to build connections between health professions and the future workforce. Students are mentored and coached weekly for a semester to develop skills in workplace behavior, innovation, and team-building.

St. Vincent Health recognizes that achieving employment can be a barrier to personal and financial success for anyone. Barriers to healthy living are also influenced by our social and economic circumstances. Because of this, Danny’s Closet of Hope was created to fill a crucial need to support unemployed and underemployed residents of Indianapolis and in honor of the late Danny Nunley, Jr., whose life was tragically lost too soon. As a community-based program, Danny’s Closet of Hope provides male professional attire to individuals seeking employment or participating in a skill advancement program. Thousands of individuals have benefited from Danny’s Closet of Hope, but not without community support, generous donations, volunteers and valuable partnerships.
Recently, we have expanded the outreach of Danny’s Closet of Hope to include a greater focus on equipping individuals for success in employment and healthcare careers. This includes increasing collaborations to offer project-based learning, externship programs and mentorship opportunities. To reflect our new goal, we have changed our name from Danny’s Closet of Hope to the Success Wear Program. We will continue to build upon current workforce initiatives by educating and empowering individuals to overcome barriers to employment and achieve self-sufficiency. We will offer support and professional attire to build strong individuals, families and communities.
Success Wear offers volunteer opportunities for people interested in making a meaningful contribution to the community. We also work with individuals who are seeking to fulfill volunteer requirements. Without the hard work and good hearts of volunteers every week, there would be no Success Wear Program. It’s that simple.
Inventory: Volunteers assess and sort clothing items that have been donated. Volunteers may also label and assist in managing the catalogue of professional clothing.
Clothing Orders: Volunteers fill clothing orders in preparation of upcoming suit appointments.
Personal Shopping: Volunteers will work directly with clients in selecting professional attire.
Office: Volunteers assist with general administrative tasks including filing, data entry, mailings and other light office duties. Computer experience in Microsoft Office Suite is helpful.
