Fresh Start For Children And Families


To share love and compassion through a comprehensive educational, vocational, and economic housing program to help homeless families achieve self-sufficiency.


Fresh Start is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has been serving the area’s homeless population for more than 30 years. The organization was formed in 1986 by local clergy, lay people, and citizens in response to the growing homeless population.


Fresh Start operates three major programs: two are housing and education programs for homeless families; the third is open to the public, and is our primary funding source for the housing and education programs. The three Fresh Start programs are: Transitional Housing, Affordable (Step-up) Housing, and Repeat Street Thrift Store (funds the charity).
