Helping to empower men
to make their 1st Impression
their best Impression!
My mission is to lower the recidivism rate that disproportionately affects Black men. In 2017, Pew Research Center reported Black adults are more than five times as likely to be incarcerated than whites.
The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion found that of 600,000 people released from prison each year, more than 50% are incarcerated again.Donate
Help Open an Outlet Store to Support Our Men In Need!
My vision is to set up 1st Impression as a outlet store which will allow me to better serve a larger clientele efficiently. As the search for a location continues, Williams said the organization will need resources such as tables and hangers. If you want to donate or help, contact Williams at email@example.com.Donate
What is 1st Impression?
1st Impression is a non-profit organization that provides professional attire at no charge to, men who may not have the appropriate attire or finances to purchase interview attire.
