Office of Project Fresh Start

Due to COVID-19, the Office of Project Fresh Start is closed to the public until further notice.  

The Office of Project Fresh Start is a reentry resource center located in the City Hall. At the office, staff will assess needs of the clients, provide guidance, and facilitate access to appropriate services across the state. We ensure that people have access to programs and resources that will facilitate their successful reintegration. 

The Office of Project Fresh start also provides bus passes and backpacks with basic needs to residents who were recently released. Additionally, we provide a one-time fee waiver to get an Elm City Resident Card, and we offer educational workshops about the pardon process.
