First Impressions is a collaborative program between the United Way of Mid & South Jefferson County and United Board of Missions.
The ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Report documents that the 2010 Census found that 19% of our community living in poverty and another 26% living in survival mode. ALICE spotlights that our families are not only unemployed but under employed. In 2019 Mid & South Jefferson County has seen the promise of industrial growth and expansion plans, oppertunity is just around the corner for our workforce. The workforce boom will impact the service industry, health care, small business and industry.
Those preparing for interviews or new opportunities need the self confidence to be their best and make a great First Impression. First Impressions offers assistance with interview clothing, uniforms, workwear, safety wear, and other workforce neccessities. The program is provided through the support of the United Way MSJC and clothing donations from the community. Together, we are helping family, friends and neighbors make a great First Impression.
