Armsmear is governed by The Trustees of the Colt Bequest. Like our founder Elizabeth Hart Jarvis Colt, we believe that women of a certain age with limited resources should have a safe and comfortable place to live. We are dedicated to preserving and maintaining the dignity, self-worth, safety, and well-being of those living within the Armsmear community.
