BENEFITING: Fresh Start For Children And Families Inc
EVENT DATE: Nov 28, 2017
At Fresh Start for Children & Families, our primary focus has been meeting the needs of families who are in crisis and at risk for homelessness. Through our nine-month Transitional Housing Program, we provide much more than a roof over their heads. We invest in their long-term success through a comprehensive family program that includes educational, vocational, financial and other life skills training. The goal is to empower our families to make a better wage, invest in a career, and become self-sufficient. We don't stop with assistance for the parents. Recently, we have added on-site after school tutoring for school-age children, and family-focused events for the entire family.
What are we missing? A space where KIDS CAN BE KIDS! Currently, the only place to get outside and play includes the sidewalks in front of their apartments, or the small administrative parking lot. Earlier this year, we purchased a vacant lot adjacent to our step-up housing and received a grant from Impact 100 NWF to help us build a playground area complete with an activitiy building for tutoring and classes.
IMPACT 100 funds willbe used for the infrastructure and equipmet, your donations would help us furnish the activites center and purchase outdoor tables and chairs for gatherings and family visits.
