ARM is comprised of a bunch of young, dedicated, community-driven individuals. This IS our first rodeo, so if you think we might need something, we probably do!
Social innovation is only as good as the support it can leverage. We are scaling a program, so we KNOW it can be successful; we just have to make sure businesses and foundations agree! A business plan is a critical element of that discussion.
We have an amazing toolkit from lavamae about the program we plan to scale and an ultra-dedicated team of community-driven leaders!
ARM loves the hail mary pass! There's nothing too bold for our outfit. We are young, dedicated, and ready to make a splash!
Provide much needed personal hygiene services to homeless people in Middlesex County with the goal of raising each person's self esteem and ultimately his/her quality of life.
ARM was born out of a push to do more. Most of our founders were Rutgers University Alumni and we often found that student engagement was limited to very scripted activities that treat philanthropy as a reactive rather than a proactive endeavor. We were tired of doing the least we could do, so we fixed that. ARM currently operates several events a year that focus on putting the wonderful private institutions that make New Brunswick and Middlesex County unique back to the service of its citizens. Oh, and did we mention, we want to retrofit a metro bus to bring free showers and connect service providers to guests in Middlesex County! #JointheARMy and let's fight to make our community a little better, together.

Hey yall! ARM has had some stellar work from out Catchafire volunteers and we are hoping to keep it up! Our major and most ambitious program is retrofitting a Metrobus with showers and washer/dryers for the homeless in our community. A big part of making that happen is getting a solid business plan together; does anyone think that might be something they're interested in?
