ABOUT US

Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. 1,000 Ties emerged out of one mother's desire to teach her son the basic skill of putting on a tie. Established in 2019, we’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support. Contact us to learn more and get involved.
