Fresh Start for Youth - An Endowment Fund

 

The mission of Fresh Start is to develop an endowment fund to offer assistance to the most vulnerable members of our community-teens and young adults. Our goal is to step in when no other community resources are available and help our youth by providing support to achieve career, physical, and mental well-being.

The ideal candidate for this program is a teen or young adult who has demonstrated the ability and drive to succeed if given the opportunity for a fresh start. Examples of requests that will be considered are:

  • Support for on-the-job training programs or to attend college
  • Books and school supplies
  • Work uniforms and tools
  • Tutoring assistance to ensure educational success

The Fresh Start Committee will process requests made on behalf of youth in need of assistance. These requests will originate from varies public agencies such as probation and our school system as well as from local non-profit and faith-based organizations. The committee may also consider support of funds, to meet immediate needs and cope with a crisis.

Once a request has been approved the funds will be made available to the appropriate organization.
