Community Impact Fund Spotlight 7: Fresh Start

About Fresh Start.

Fresh Start Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that builds meaningful construction career opportunities for dedicated workers in the Washington D.C. area through quality job-training, industry mentorship, and wrap-around community support.

There is a gap in services for those who are facing unemployment in Washington D.C. Fresh Start aims to bridge this gap through  a comprehensive, holistic approach that helps each person to build a meaningful career with the skills they need to obtain, retain, and sustain their employment.

The organization plans to use CIF grant funds to provide job training and job placement to Ward 8 job seekers with the most barriers and limited skills, education, and access to careers in the construction and trades industry. With the grant funds, Fresh Start will serve 20 individuals per cohort. To learn more about Fresh Start, visit their website here.

About Martha’s Table Community Impact Fund: 
The Martha’s Table Community Impact Fund is a grant program that strengthens and amplifies the work of Ward 8 nonprofit organizations. This direct investment helps build capacity for organizations historically excluded from institutional philanthropy and whose leadership and staff reflect the demographic, composition, and lived experiences of the communities they serve. For the 2023-2024 grant cycle, grants of up to $15,000 in unrestricted funds were awarded to 14 organizations that were selected by a committee of 38 Ward 8 residents.
