Make a difference

Donate Here  

"When you make a donation, you feel good knowing you are making a difference in the life of someone who needs a helping hand for just a little bit. At Fresh Start, it is because of your donation that we are able to assist women in overcoming homelessness. From room and board, groceries, toiletries and more, Fresh Start relies on donations to host the 24 women living within our walls. We also have a staff member in the building – 24/7. Our small but vital team is the fundamental building block to helping these women grow. Consider making a donation to Fresh Start. Every dollar counts and makes a direct impact in the lives of our residents. That’s something you can count on." — Sally Jarecke, Past President of the Board of Directors

Thank you in advance for your generous support that allows us to make a difference in the lives of homeless women and their families each year.

  • You can make a difference by favoring Fresh Start with a monthly gift of at least $10, automatically charged to your credit-card or bank account. All you have to do is set it up. Seeds for Change is an important donation source, as it is something that Fresh Start can count on every month, pandemic or not. For example, a $15-per-month donation provides daily meals for one person for the month, and when your gift is combined with other recurring gifts, the impact increases exponentially.

    It’s simple to set up and can be done from the Fresh Start website at Just click on the donation button, provide information including your email address and credit-card information, and you’re immediately helping a crucial cause. That brings the program motto to life: “Seeds for Change: From little seeds grow lovely flowers.”

    If you prefer to have the donation deducted from your bank account, please use the Seeds for Change ACH form, downloaded from the website by clicking the "Seeds for Change" title.
