1. Understand the Need in Your Community

To embark on your journey of starting a laser tattoo removal non-profit or incorporating tattoo removal services into your existing non-profit organization, begin by understanding the unique needs within your community. Developing insights into the demographics of individuals seeking tattoo removal services, specifically related to gang-affiliated and human trafficking tattoos, can assist your leadership team in determining the best approach. Whether you’re starting a new non profit organization with tattoo removal services, or are interested in adding laser tattoo removal to your existing non profit, conducting the proper research in your specific area is a crucial first step.

2. Develop a Solid Business Plan for Your Non-Profit

Creating a comprehensive business plan is paramount to your success in reducing recidivism and helping survivors regain control of their lives. Astanza can offer expert guidance on how to overcome the challenges non-profits face when starting a laser tattoo removal-focused non-profit. Your business plan should outline your mission, objectives, target demographic, and the specialized services you intend to provide. A few areas that must be prioritized in non-profit business and strategy planning include funding, developing a volunteer base, and personnel.


3. Build Strong Partnerships

Collaboration is vital in the non-profit sector, especially when dealing with sensitive issues and serving marginalized communities. Building solid partnerships with local support organizations, law enforcement agencies, correctional facilities, and social service providers is essential. Such collaborations create a network of like-minded organizations that can help you better serve those seeking to escape these cycles, fostering a safe environment for transformation.

4. Secure Funding and Resources

Financial resources are critical to running a non-profit organization focused on reducing recidivism and aiding survivors. Astanza has worked with dozens of non-profit tattoo removal organizations and can provide you with grants and funding ideas that align with your mission – emphasizing the importance of assisting these populations.
