Fees/Costs (rates as of July 2016, call for updated rates)
If you do not have any kind of income you will not have to pay program fees. When you get a source of income such as a job or start receiving benefits (unemployment, SSI, SSDI, SNAP, etc) you will be required to pay fees. Fresh Start has two types of program fees: the sliding scale fees and the house fund. The sliding scale is 33% of the resident’s income towards program fees. The fee is based on the NET pay. This fee does not exceed $233 per month. House fund can be paid one of two ways: $25 cash/check or residents receiving SNAP benefits (i.e.”food stamps”) may make a voluntary contribution of one third of their benefits. There is also a self-sufficiency fund; it is a required means for saving money for departure from Fresh Start. It is 10% of your net income and it is deducted from your net wages before program fees are calculated. If you wish to add additional money, it can be added at any time.
