Fresh Start provides at-risk youth ages 16-24 an opportunity to work toward their high school
equivalency diploma, pursue post-secondary educational opportunities, and develop workplace and life skills while they build affordable housing for low-income families. CAP began offering Fresh Start in 1999 in response to a need expressed by low-income individuals and community organizations in Waushara County for an employment-based youth intervention program.
Participants divide their day between classroom studies and building a single-family home under the guidance of a housing professional.
Fresh Start services were expanded to Waupaca County in June of 2009.
