Fresh Start Ministries is a Christ-centered substance abuse and recovery ministry, that believes that the answer to a life free from addiction lies in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Fresh Start Outreach Ministries, Inc. was founded in 2001 with a vision to reach those people hurting from drug and alcohol addiction and give them a “Fresh Start” on a new life. We are called to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to them which are bound.
Over the last several years we have seen many men transformed by the power of God who are now actively involved in the ministry of the local church. God is raising up a generation of radically-changed people who are carrying a message of freedom to those suffering from drug and alcohol abuse.
Drug and alcohol addiction tug at the very fiber of communities and account for more crime than any other cause. Yet the drugs, without question, are symptomatic of a deeper problem. We believe the answer lies in a faith-based program that promotes a relationship with God as the foundation for recovery. Numerous studies indicate that faith-based recovery programs are working all over the country, some having success rates as high as 80%. The body of Christ is uniting to make communities better places to live by helping the addict recover permanently. Chains are being broken and people are beginning to experience the abundant life Christ has to offer.
Mercy Ministries’ free-of-charge, voluntary, faith-based residential program serves young women from all socio-economic backgrounds, ages 13-28, who face a combination of life-controlling issues such as eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, depression and unplanned pregnancy. Mercy also serves young women who have been physically and sexually abused, including victims of sex trafficking. Using proven methods, a holistic approach and professional counselors in a structured residential environment, Mercy has helped thousands of young women be restored to wholeness. Mercy’s goal is to help these young women find freedom from their issues and empower them to serve in their communities as productive citizens.
