Fresh Start Presents Adopt a Resident Program for Holiday Gift Giving
Fresh Start (www.FreshStartHome.org) is encouraging people to consider adding someone else to their holiday shopping list this year for their Adopt a Resident program. Fresh Start does everything possible to make the holidays an inviting time for its 24 female residents, and you can help by purchasing gifts for them. Find items for residents on the Christmas wish list at www.FreshStartHome.org or contact Audrey Back at email@example.com. The residents have listed treats, movie tickets, gift cards, slippers, and more.
Although each of Fresh Start’s female residents has a unique story, they share the willingness to begin their lives again. Fresh Start Program Coordinator Meg Damme said, “It means a lot to our women to know people in the community are proud of the work they are doing and believe in their ability to be successful. That people have enough faith in them to believe they deserve to have a nice Christmas.”
Fresh Start is a transitional housing program that empowers women experiencing homelessness to change their lives by recognizing and using their strengths to overcome barriers to self-sufficiency. Since its formation in 1991, over 1,700 women have called Fresh Start home. Learn more at www.FreshStartHome.org or call (402) 475-7777.
