The Fresh Start Staff

Fresh Start employs a staff of dedicated and compassionate professionals and volunteers.

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, education and training that will serve to provide our clients with the best path to recovery. Our professional and volunteer 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.
