Fresh Start Take Away

Here at Fresh Start we are thrilled to hear this news because it shows that people are paying attention and charities are not alone in the fight to end homelessness. 

 

While it is fantastic that more people are going to get off the street with the help of the governor we must also continue to think about those who won't.

 

Our dream at fresh start is to see a California where public showers and restrooms are prevalent in major cities.

 

This way no matter how many or how few people experience homelessness they can still have access to proper hygiene.  

Because everyone deserves a fresh start.
