Program/Project“Renovation and Community Enhancement”

This renovation project will transform a once drug-infested 3-BR house into a transitional home for 4-6 women who are a part of the Fresh Start Community. Privacy and security fencing will redirect alley traffic from private property and a walking/biking path will provide a safe space as single mothers reunify with their children and   prepare for permanent housing. In the last two years, Fresh Start for Women has   provided safe, affordable, transitional housing for 27 single women who completed an addiction program and 55 of their children.
