WE are Together in Recovery! – You are our Community

Family…… Friends……Alumni ……

WE are Together in Recovery! – You are our Community

Dear Friends and Supporters,

As the year 2023 draws to a close and we reflect on the possibilities of tomorrow, our thoughts and interactions grow and resonate with the importance of family and community and coming together. At Fresh Start, this is not just a cliche or tagline but the actual threads woven into our organization’s fabric, a seamless transition from Alumni to friends to family to our community. These are the threads that define the fabric of our organization.

Last year marked a milestone with our “30th anniversary – One Day – One Week and One Year at a Time,” a celebration of three decades dedicated to transformative healing. Looking towards the horizon, we are excited to introduce our 2023-24 fundraising campaign: “Together in Recovery.”

This theme is more than a tagline; it reflects our core belief that recovery is a journey we embark on together – as individuals, families, and a community. Our purpose is to House, Treat, and Support individuals to Recovery, continue to provide essential support to those on this path, and strengthen the bonds that make recovery sustainable, meaningful, and lasting.

Why Your Support Matters: Your generosity plays a crucial role in sustaining and expanding our programs, including:

  • Continuing our core addiction treatment program, offering a lifeline to those seeking to reclaim their lives.
  • Broadening our Family Healing Program, empowering families, friends, and community affected by addiction with the tools and understanding needed for collective healing.
  • Enhancing Post Treatment Housing: A crucial step in strengthening the continuum of care is providing affordable, supported living environments. In today’s challenging rental and housing market, this aspect of care is more vital than ever.

Recovery is an intricate tapestry of connection – the precious threads of time spent with loved ones, the rich patterns of shared experiences within our community and the bonds woven through our collective struggles and triumphs. By supporting “Together in Recovery,” you are not merely funding programs; you are strengthening the threads that hold this tapestry together.

As we move forward, Fresh Start is weaving a stronger and more vibrant tapestry than ever before, bringing together our alumni, friends, family, governments, and community. Together, we celebrate the journeys of recovery, offering hope and support to those who are just beginning to weave their own stories of healing and renewal.

Join Us in Making a Difference.

We invite you to weave your own story into ours. Every contribution, whether large or small, adds a vital strand to strengthening our recovery community. Together, let’s continue this vital work, combining our efforts for the benefit of every individual, every family, and our entire community affected by addiction.

Together, we can turn the promise of recovery into a reality for many.

Thank you for your continued support and belief in our mission.

With gratitude,

Bruce Holstead
