Fresh Start is a transitional shelter that empowers homeless women to change their lives by recognizing and utilizing their strengths to overcome barriers to self-sufficiency.
YOU make a difference! Fresh Start accepts all kinds of items. Household cleaning supplies, personally hygiene supplies (especially for women of color), bus passes and gas cards. In addition to those and gently used women's clothing, we also accept non perishable food items like coffee and canned goods.
