The organization began in 2003 as a community service project to collect prom dresses for disadvantaged girls residing in metro Atlanta. To date, the Enchanted Closet has outfitted nearly 4000 girls for special occasions.
In 2008, the Enchanted Closet launched its GIRL$ Service-Learning Program, which are life-readiness workshops designed to increase the self-esteem, self-awareness and self-sufficiency of girls. More than 400 girls have participated in the GIRL$ Program. And in 2010, the organization opened the Enchanted Closet Boutique, which allows the Enchanted Closet to sell largely discounted formalwear to the public and use the sales proceeds to fund the organization's programming. The Boutique allows the organization to collect prom attire and accessories year-round.
