ABOUT US

Background

The name “A New Start” was decided on in the mid-1990s prior to incorporation. It is a name that breathes hope to those going through a social or financial problem. After acceptance of the problem, the resulting solutions will create “a new start” and a reset in life. At some point, in all of our lives, we all have needed “a new start” in something. This is very much in line with our Human Trafficking projects where the survivors will have “a new start” in life. Our mission is to simply bring permanent solutions to societal problems. We are problem solvers.

Purpose

Our institution was founded by a group of professionals with talents ranging from accounting, business, public administration, public relations, marketing, policing, education, community outreach, military, and law. We intend to bring a different set of business values and collaborative efforts in order to solve societal problems.

MISSION

To empower and equip society with solutions to societal issues…
