Meicher CPAs, along with managing partner Gordy Meicher, is proud to be a major donor to Operation Fresh Start (OFS). OFS is an organization which has provided comprehensive education, employment and training services to over 8,000 youth and adults in Dane County since 1970. A non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, OFS is best known for its core program, titled Pathways. Pathways helps young people (who have previously dropped out of high school), obtain their high school diploma and gain the skills to be successful in life.
OFS annually serves 200 disconnected youth by providing education to attain a high school credential, job training in construction or conservation work, and guided mentorship in the transition into post-secondary education or a living wage career.
On January 23rd OFS unveiled its new home at 2670 Milwaukee Street in Madison, WI, this former church will provide OFS with the space necessary to double the number of young people on the path to self-sufficiency.
“OFS’ work as an organization is absolutely necessary if we are to make progress in our community toward improving the well-being and future prospects of all our youth and particularly our youth of color,” said Erica Nelson, Project Director, Race to Equity and OFS Board Member.
