The Fresh Start Staff

Fresh Start employs a staff of dedicated and compassionate professionals.

Our commitment to the success of our program is reflected in the high standard of our work and our adherence to our core values. We place a premium on the ethics, personal development, education and training that will serve to provide our clients with the best path to recovery. Our professional experience is augmented by the fact that a significant number of us are in recovery ourselves and are proud to serve as examples that change is possible.

Mission Fit

Ron Jarrett, owner of Mission Fitness is what a committed and helpful community partner is all about. He trains the clients in the house weekly and believes that true strength and progress can only be made from a solid foundation.  That foundation includes alignment, mobility and stability, and must address any muscular imbalances, weaknesses and lack of connection.  Achieving this level means the body is able to progress safely without fear of injury. www.missionfit.ca
