Career Closet


Career Closet was founded in Santa Clara County in 1991 in response to an overwhelming unmet need in the community. Our founders, Pallas Hansen and Charlotte Krumwiede, noticed that there were numerous programs throughout the area that provided vocational training and job search assistance to economically disadvantaged women. In 2000, Career Closet partnered with similar pioneers, Carole Kirk and Kris Mackin, in San Mateo County. Today, women are referred to the two Career Closet locations by a variety of non-profit and government agencies such as local and county employment centers, homeless shelters, domestic violence centers, vocational schools and job training programs.
