Posted on: April 20th, 2015 by xmlrpc

Fresh Start is an organization empowering women and helping them develop skills to improve their lives. In this segment, we sit down with Susan Berman, President and CEO, and talk about how Fresh Start is able to help women and their children start anew. 

Fresh Start Women’s Foundation is dedicated to supporting women who want to thrive. For more than 20 years, Fresh Start has connected and changed women’s lives through free and low cost services. The Jewell McFarland Lewis Fresh Start Women’s Resource Center in Phoenix, the first comprehensive women’s self-help facility in the nation, opened its doors in 2002 and serves more than 25,000 visitors annually.

The Fresh Start Fashion Gala, Saturday, Feb. 21 at 6 p.m. at the Arizona Biltmore with a goal of increasing awareness about Fresh Start Women’s Foundation and raising $1 million to support the life-changing programs that help Fresh Start’s clients transform their lives through education and engagement. 

The 19th annual Fresh Start Fashion Gala will welcome MLB Hall of
Fame manager and Chief Baseball Officer, Joe Torre, as Honorary Chair. Torre will attend the gala and inspire guests during the heartfelt and uplifting presentation portion of the event. “Joe is a national legend and we are so excited to have his support at our gala,” said Susan Berman, Fresh Start’s CEO. “His passion to educate and end domestic violence is a familiar tie with Fresh Start, as many of our clients have experienced, or are currently experiencing, domestic abusive relationships, and Fresh Start empowers women to transform their lives through education and engagement.” Torre is familiar with many of the issues faced by the children of the women who turn to Fresh Start for support with domestic violence.

As the youngest of one of five children, Torre experienced domestic abuse in his family with an emotionally abusive father who was also a physically abusive husband. In 2002, along with his wife Ali, Torre started the Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation with the mission of “educating to end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives.” He currently serves as the organization’s chairman. And, in 2010, he was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the national Advisory Committee on Violence Against Women.
