Fresh Start services are provided free to children and young adults of financially disadvantaged families. Typically, these are individuals and families who do not have medical insurance, do not qualify for state-funded programs, or who would suffer significant financial hardship if they were to pay for the necessary and costly medical treatment.
Fresh Start services are offered to qualified patients, under the right circumstances. Walkups are not taken, and surgeries are planned months in advance. You must apply in advance and be accepted as a patient in order to receive services from Fresh Start Surgical Gifts.
The majority of volunteers at our Surgery Weekends and Dental Clinics are medical professionals ranging from anesthesiologists and surgeons to dental hygienists and RNs. If you are a medical professional interested in volunteering with Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, visit the Volunteer Opportunities page to start the volunteer application process. We do have opportunities for non-medical volunteers at our Office and some opportunities at our Surgery Weekends and Dental Clinics.
