Start Anew Resource Fair
Saturday, June 24, 12 to 3 p.m.
Ames Lodge and Minnehaha Temple #129
1614 Plymouth Ave. N., Mpls 55411
Start Anew is a 24-month program that offers a broad range of services as well as a challenging curriculum requiring clients to examine themselves as spiritual beings and discover who they are now, what they want to become and how to get there. Our vision is to provide reentry and other transitional services to women with backgrounds that provide challenges to obtaining employment and housing. Our program will offer clients the tools and life skills to empower and enable them to succeed and become role models for others. We are a group of dedicated men and women who have been called to serve this much-underserved population of women struggling for a better life.
On Saturday we are holding our third annual resource fair as we bring together organizations to provide a dynamic community resource fair. This will be a wonderful opportunity to promote and share information about your organization, as well as recruit members from the community.
For questions please contact Daughter* Cecelia Viel, 612-223-1305 or (*The Daughters of the Improved Benevolent Protective Order of Elks of the World are the female auxiliary of the Improved Benevolent Protective Order of Elks of the World, an African-American spin-off of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. Unlike the latter organization, which never officially had female auxiliaries, the Daughters has been officially recognized and encouraged by its male counterpart. The Daughters takes the 13th chapter of First Corinthians as its guide. In the order’s first 50 years of existence it raised over $2 million in college scholarships for youth of all races. The Daughters were also active during the Civil Rights Movement during the 1960s and ’70s.)
Start Anew also presents It’s OK 2 B U, an empowerment group for women who have legal barriers. We are open to the public every Wednesday at 1401 Newton Ave. N., Mpls. 55411 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. 612-223-1305.
