It is our firm belief that even the most hardened of criminals, or offenders, can be touched and changed forever by the power and love of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. Fresh Start Ministries of Tampa, Inc. provides counseling and mentoring, not only for incarcerated women who want to change their lives but also for those who are struggling to battle, anger, resentment, and isolation that prison life often times causes. We address the spiritual, emotional and mental health needs of incarcerated men, women and children, and to their families.
Fresh Start Ministries of Tampa, Inc. works with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing counseling services that span from therapy for depression and grief counseling to 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 strength and development.
Within the last 10 years, we've seen women being released from prison, equipped with tools they need for success but no place to go or anyone to help the 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.
