What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Men's Shelter

The ARM Men's Shelter is designed to house homeless men while helping them get back on their feet. This might include recovering from addictive behaviors, home plans after incarceration, or rebuilding after family breakdowns. During their stay with us, the men are given meaningful work to do, encouraging self confidence and vocational training. We assist the men with counseling, budgeting, signing up for medical assistance, housing, paying off fines, etc. We help with finding housing, jobs, transportation as much as we're able when they are ready to move on.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
