NuStart Community Services, LLC was presented the fourth Fulfill Your Destiny’s Business Builder Grant!

img_3573In January 2017, a fourth Business Builder Grant was presented to Mrs. Angela Mickens and NuStart Community Services, LLC.  Her company, NuStart Community Services, LLC was founded in February 2016.  Mrs. Mickens has a social work background spanning ten years across the state of Florida.  She has always had a passion for serving those in the community who would otherwise go without the appropriate resources. Mrs. Mickens wanted to ensure that in these tough economic times, she was making a way to assist those who were in need; in essence being part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

Mrs. Mickens realized she would need more commercial equipment, including a riding lawnmower, to meet the demands. This will be used in the winter months, as it gets dark earlier and a push mower takes so long on each property.  With a riding lawnmower, she would be able to provide this service to more individuals in the community.  NuStart Community Services, LLC received a grant for which she received a riding lawnmower.  As a result of this grant, she’s able to pay it forward to others in need.

Mrs. Mickens shared, “Our new riding lawnmower was delivered today. We’ve already used it and it’s perfect!  It will cut down our work day by half at least!  Now we’re able to help more families.  I can’t tell you the volume of calls we get asking for this service. No one being any more or less qualified to receive the service, but we were simply unable to take on as many families because of where we lacked.  Now we’re able to take on more jobs. So, by us being blessed, we can be a blessing!  A million thank yous wouldn’t be enough!  Thank you again!” ~ Angela Mickens, NuStart Community Services, LLC.
