Lulu Bellin Women's Empowerment Center

Our empowerment center offers a range of programs supporting women and girls from TechGYRLS and employment workshops to our Boutique and Career Closet. Both the Boutique and Career Closet are made possible by generous community donations of women’s clothing. Our hardworking volunteers prepare all of the clothing donations we receive, which are then displayed in either:

  • Our Career Closet which offers free professional and business casual clothing to women who are currently employed or seeking employment. This is a place where women can find support whether they are looking for a new outfit for an upcoming interview, or just need to build their closet of professional clothes.
  • Our Madison Street Boutique which offers a wide array of clothing and accessories for an affordable suggested donation per item. Proceeds from our boutique benefit Women’s Economic Advancement and services of our Empowerment Center. The Boutique is one of Green Bay’s hidden gems, stop in and shop with a purpose!
