The Fresh Start program actively supports individuals who are assault survivors, victims of sex trafficking or foster youth who are starting to live independently. Working with partner agencies, we help these individuals to overcome life crises or make major life changes.
We provide women who are victims of sex trafficking with emergency clothing, hygiene products and housing starter kits when they have been removed from unsafe environments. As they complete court mandated programs to clear their record, we support them through celebratory recognition at critical points in the program. .
Assault survivors are provided with blankets and hygiene products when they are going through the evidence collection process. Foster youth who are transitioning from residential care to independent living are provided with essential housing starter items for the bed, bath and kitchen
