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.
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.
To empower and equip society with solutions to societal issues…
We envision a world where community based organizations actively collaborate together and work in unison to find solutions to societal problems that are innovative, appropriate, sustainable, and tackle problems at the root cause.
To create a world where no one is discriminated for anything
To create a coalition of good amongst community based organizations and community stakeholders
To fight all injustice and threats to Democracy and the Rule of Law
To solve the problem of poverty
To foster Environmental Stewardship
To empower women and LGBTQ+ individuals
To provide opportunities for youth, elderly, homeless, veterans, background ineligible, and disabled persons
To lend a hand in solving other various societal problems
