Description

In 1998, Kathy Lambert (CEO & Co-Founder of Connections to Success), opened the first Dress for Success affiliate outside New York to provide interview appropriate attire to women in the Midwest. Soon after, her husband and Co-Founder, Brad, started a separate nonprofit, Wheels for Success to provide automobiles to families in need of reliable transportation to work. As months passed, Kathy and Brad began to understand the many gaps in services, realizing that suits and cars could not meet every need. Participants lacked the job and life skills needed to excel in their journey to economic independence. To meet these needs, extensive programming was created, and in 2001, they named their group of diverse programs Connections to Success, which became the umbrella organization housing all of the many services offered to both men and women throughout St. Louis and Kansas City regions.

Our holistic program model, with life-long mentoring at its core, focuses on Job Readiness, Career Development, Education, Computer Skills Training, Mentoring, Financial Literacy, Health & Wellness, and Family & Social Relationships. Since opening our doors, Connections to Success has served nearly 25,000 parents. As a result, we are creating a new future for more than 75,000 children. In the past 3 years, Connections to Success has saved federal and state governments over $4 million by helping participants coming from situations of poverty, homelessness, domestic violence and incarceration become income tax payers- reducing government costs associated with public assistance. Connections to Success' holistic service model delivers evidence-based results of improving the lives of the families it serves while providing a 3-to-1 social return on investment compared to the cost of our services.
