  • Fresh Start has openings for the 2019 term of the Board of Directors. Fresh Start is a transitional shelter that empowers women who are homeless to change their lives by utilizing their strengths to overcome barriers to self-sufficiency. We do this by providing a safe home and an individualized goals program. We are seeking people with an interest in ending homelessness by addressing such social issues as addiction, health (mental and physical), reentry, and unemployment.

    We recognize that everyone has skills and value to contribute and all are welcome to inquire. Of particular need at this time candidates who have expertise in accounting/finance, legal, or business/fund development. We also hope to increase the diversity on our board to better reflect those we serve. The Board of Directors is a “working board” that meets monthly. Time commitment for board members varies with committee but is typically 4 -7 hours per month.

  • Mental Health First Aid
    This 8-hour training course is designed to give you key skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or is experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental health illnesses and addictions. You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. You can help.

    The evidence behind MHFA demonstrates that it makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and builds mental health literacy.

    Youth Mental Health First Aid
    A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them.

    You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care.

    Anyone can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.
