REstart is a program devoted to bringing two of the most basic needs-housing and employment- to disadvantaged individuals caught in the cycle of poverty, substance abuse, and domestic violence. We do this by providing individuals with a program of “second chances” in life…in many cases, the chance to provide the family a decent home that meets their needs for shelter…the chance to establish a career that builds a stable future for the family…and a chance for individuals to live with the dignity that comes from hard work and professional accomplishment.
Yes- REstart offers participants training, mentoring, and job placement assistance leading to careers in property management. but more than this, the REstart program offers its graduates restored faith, renewed confidence, and reclaimed self-respect. REstart brings families home again.
