I was introduced to FareStart a decade ago and became a board member 7 years ago. My understanding and appreciation for the organization has only grown with time. The impact the organization has on individuals who are interested in turning their lives around is tremendous. The fact that 85% of the graduates get jobs within 90 days of graduation is a testament to the terrific staff, execution and vision of the organization.
