Summary

Richard P. Garmany FSA, founded in 2020, trains students in woodworking, carpentry, sheet-rocking and other related skills through an intensive eight-week program conducted at Fresh Start's headquarters in Hartford. So far, 23 individuals have graduated from the Academy and virtually each one has rapidly gained employment. With plans to greatly expand the class we require funds to build classroom infrastructure and mentorship support for future classes. Your gift will help aid in these efforts.

Challenge

Studies indicate for individuals challenged by addiction 30% of those who abuse drugs and alcohol are unemployed and often homeless, according to the CDC. Furthermore, one in six unemployed workers are addicts - twice the rate of those working full-time. The Richard P. Garmany Fresh Start Academy exists as a safe and supportive environment that encourages their road to independence in rejoining society through education.

Solution

The Richard P. Garmany Fresh Start Academy solves a problem in education access for many folks new to this country, overcoming substance abuse or are returning to the community after being incarcerated. We offer a path to skill knowledge in carpentry and construction that is barrier free. We teach skills valuable to a new career earning a livable wage helping reduce poverty in the community we support.

Long-Term Impact

The Richard P. Garmany Fresh Start Academy's long-term impact will decrease unemployment in the community and train over 40 people in our carpentry and construction program in 2024.
