Fresh Start Take Away

At Fresh Start we are glad to see that the concept of hotels for the homeless is becoming and international answer to a difficult problem.

It is also wonderful to see that the hotel partnered with charities to provide addiction workshops. 

Homelessness is often not a problem of just lack of housing. Many people who are homeless suffer from other hardships that make it hard to become housed. 

Our hope is that mental issues and addiction issues become a priority in the American health care system.
