About us Dress for Success Indianapolis was granted its charter in May 1999 to the founding Executive Director, Talene Shuck. Talene, along with other founding board members, saw the need for such an organization in the Indianapolis area. The original program, Suits for Success, served its first client in 2000. Dress for Success moved to a permanent home in downtown Indianapolis in 2001 and in 2006, the second program, Professional Women’s Group, was launched. In May 2009, the Career Development Center started serving clients through our third program which addresses career planning and development needs. The organization relocated to its current facility at 820 N. Meridian Street in May 2008. Dress for Success Indianapolis has grown significantly and measurably since its inception in 1999. There are six full-time and two part-time employees who oversee programs and daily operations. Volunteers continue to be a driving force for the organization.
