It is our firm belief that even the most hardened of hearts can be touched and changed forever by the power and love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Beyond the Gates Prison Ministry provides incarcerated women with hope and healing through mentorship and biblical teaching. We address the spiritual, emotional and mental health needs of women behind the gates to prepare them for beyond the gate.
Fresh Start Ministries of Tampa, Inc. offers a wide range of reentry mental health and behavioral therapy services, including: one-on-one therapy, grief counseling, parenting support, couples counseling and spiritual enrichment. Services are provided in a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, offering a highly personalized approach tailored to each client’s individual needs to ensure personal growth and development.
Within the last 10 years, we've seen women get released from prison, equipped with the tools they need for success but with no place to go nor anyone to help them with their new struggles of transitioning back into society. There is an incredible need for transitional housing for these women. Gaining their freedom is only half of the battle. It is our desire to have a transformational home called "Victory House", where Fresh Start Ministries can provide additional training, mentoring and coaching as these women transition back into society as contributing citizens.
