Our purpose is to help individuals and families have an easier transition from a shelter to a home by helping fill the cupboards, shelves and drawers with items to make it feel more like their place.
How we do it:
Approximately once a month, through our shelter partners, we source an individual or family in the process of moving from a shelter situation to their own home. With few resources available, this would be a tough situation for anyone. For each client of The Fresh Start project, we create a customized list of 100-150 items that would help give them the foundation to make their day-to-day living, and the first couple months in their new home easier, helping the financial burden and stress levels.
This list of items is sent to our community (you!) through our Facebook page. (Please get connected with us by joining now)
Our goal is within 5 days of posting the client’s wish list, we have collected all items and are delivering them to their home.
How to get involved:
1. Individual item donations
2. Item pick up and packing
3. Administrative and office support
4. Monthly Client drop off
5. Financial Donations and Corporate sponsorship
