His admiration for his mother, coupled with some trials he faced being raised by a single parent, inspired him to start his non-profit organization “Ties for Change.”

Ties for Change

Timothy started the non-profit organization “Ties for Change,” because some of the challenges he faced as a young boy. While attending his 5th-grade graduation, Timothy watched all of the others sons preparing to walk across the stage. Watching the other students get ready for graduation their fathers were present to assist them with tying their ties. His mothers work load did not allow for her to be able to attend his graduation. The next day Timothy rode his bike 10 miles to the nearest Men’s Warehouse. Upon arrival, Timothy asked one of the sales associates if they could teach him how to tie a tie. Timothy started the organization to assist with the progression of helping young African American males professionally.
