We are very excited to finally launch our volunteer management site through VolunteerMark! Volunteers now can sign up for opportunities online and receive updates and reminders of their schedule. This mobile-friendly software is exciting for us as we can now store and track volunteer data. Last year reStart had 4,214 volunteers provide 15,477 hours of service and now we will be able to maximize the volunteer experience through better communication. Sign up today!
We are so proud to have a continued partnership with the HALO Foundation, a nonprofit that empowers youth through art. Through the HALO Learning Center of Kansas City, along with volunteers and amazing staff that visit each Monday, our homeless youth within our supportive programs are able to partake in their art therapy classes.
We were excited to attend their 9th Annual ArtReach Auction and learn that they raised $125,000 that will go toward providing a brighter future for homeless, at-risk, and orphaned youth! For us, the night was particularly special because they showed this powerful video featuring one of reStart’s youth resident’s, Oscar. We are thankful each day for HALO and how they empower our youth through art. Learn more at www.haloworldwide.org.
