Fresh Start would be nowhere without the tireless work and devotion of our volunteers.
All of our mentors who volunteer in our Adult Mentoring Program devote a minimum of 8 hours each month to help men and women build successful, positive lives after experiencing incarceration.
We are thrilled to see that Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds has recognized one of our volunteer mentors, Dennis Murphy, with the Governor’s Volunteer Service Award.
Dennis has been a volunteer mentor for the Adult Mentoring Program for over 17 years, and he has also helped to facilitate new mentoring groups for the program for the past four years. During his time with our program, Dennis has, directly and indirectly, helped dozens of people. For each of these individuals, and for our program, Dennis has been a true blessing.
