Who Helps Us
Operation Fresh Start
Operation Fresh Start (OFS) provides Dane County youth a path to self-sufficiency through education and job training. In Dane County there are over 4,000 disconnected youth, ages 16 – 24. The vast majority of them have not completed high school and many lack the connections and resources needed to succeed in life. OFS is here to help these youth find a path forward and a new beginning.
St. Ann Center specializes in adult and child day services in a safe, home-like inter-generational setting, where compassion, care and dignity are key. We do this by bringing all ages together—from 6 weeks old to 100+. Youngsters learn to respect and socialize with all types of people. And older adults delight to the sight and sounds of children, improving their physical and mental health and sense of self-worth while making dozens of young, loving friends.
