reStart Celebrates the Holidays!

reStart had a very blessed holiday this year with our generous supporters adopting our families and singles, many of our dedicated volunteers coming in donating their time, and we even had Santa and Mrs. Clause visit our kids one evening. We were very excited to have Kansas City Chief’s linebacker, Tamba Hali, adopt reStart this year. He took time out of his busy schedule to spread some holiday cheer. He surprised some of the teens from our youth shelter by taking them shopping and then made a visit a few days later with his elves delivering even more gifts for all—kids, teens, families, and adults. He met with each and every resident to take a picture and sign autographs. We are truly thankful for everyone that put smiles on our residents’ faces this season!

reStart Achieves a 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator

We are proud to announce that reStart has achieved a 4-star rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency through Charity Navigator. As the nonprofit sector continues to grow at an unprecedented pace, savvy donors are demanding more accountability, transparency and quantifiable results from the charities they choose to support with their hard-earned dollars. Charity Navigator evaluates charities and provides donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make.
