REstart Committee

The REstart Program serves several purposes. Primarily, it
provides a home and a job for women who may have had to leave everything in order to escape a violent relationship. With the training these families receive, they will be able to start a new career and also provide a home for their families. In addition, single parents can work at home and yet still be with their children, if they choose.

The program also benefits our members who are in the multi-family management business by providing them with motivated and committed job candidates who are trained, mentored over a three month period by our own ARM members, and ready to be placed on-site on a small to medium sized apartment building.
