Project Details

What We Need
  • A compilation of research on a specific topic (e.g. industry best practices, literature review, media contacts, industry trends, etc.) including a list of sources
  • Recommendations on areas for further exploration/research
Additional Details

We are looking to have someone help us with a research project to forecast and predict our next goal of a mobile shower system. Having a concrete projection of costs and potential funding sources will assist with our current strategy of developing partners.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a very clear goal and project scope, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a series of resources and potential forecasting contacts, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,239 , allowing us to focus on our current clients and initiatives to provide top class community care.

This project will empower our team to further articulate the needs of our organization as we move to grow rapidly over the next 18 months.

About The Org

Our Mission

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.

What We Do

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.


Erica was amazing! She really delivered on an essential piece of research for us and exceeded expectations. We would love to work together with her again!
