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. 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 women behind the gates to prepare them for beyond the gate.
Fresh Start Ministries of Tampa, Inc. offers a wide range of mental health and behavioral therapy services that include therapy 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 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.
