The mission of 100 Suits for 100 Men is to help underprivileged men and women improve their role in society, build dignity and self-esteem, foster self-sufficiency, dispel stereotypes, and promote community involvement in order to build each other up.
100 Suits for 100 Men was founded in 2011 by Mr. Kevin Livingston that wanted to create a program to address the needs of underprivileged men and women in need of business attire in the New York City area. In 2015, we obtained our 501 (c)(3) non-profit status. Our core service is to provide free business attire to men and women who are in the job search process. By being able to wear appropriate attire to their interviews, these men and women are better equipped to achieve gainful employment, which will ultimately help them to transition into mainstream society and live more productive lives. Through this program, we also provide free haircuts for men and wig referrals for women, where needed.
Some of our other community partners are the National Action Network, numerous pastors and churches, Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey, key individuals and politicians, and local media contacts. In addition to the outside sources, the 100 Suits staff of volunteers are some of the most dedicated and valued assets of our organization. However, more funding can bring more quality people to 100 Suits on a permanent basis, in additions to better fixed assets and better programs, thus the goal of more services to our target population.
