Speaking & Training
Although we currently do not require fees for our speaking services (except for travel expenses), we do encourage tax deductible donations to ARMS to assist in continuing services to people affected by domestic violence in our communities (suggested amount of $100 per hour). You may donate here or supply a check when we visit you. Thank you for your support!
