Recidivism is a national crisis that can be drastically reduced when we all come together to support our community members as they are reintegrated into society. At Fresh Start- New Beginning, we are committed to bringing a bright future to those with a troubled past.
We are currently asking our neighbors, community members, and supporters to assist us in fundraising $50,000 in order to put a down payment on the apartment buildings located at *1614 E Wood Drive in Phoenix, AZ. These building will allow us to provide housing to 20 previously incarcerated people who have met the FSNB requirements and who are on their way to turning their lives around. These buildings will also help us to provide employment to many of our community members, as it will require a bit of renovation work.
We are joining forces with employers, government officials, community members, and everyone in between in an effort to drastically reduce recidivism rates in the state of Arizona. Please consider donating a few dollars to help change the lives of American families for generations.
*If the property at 1614 E Wood Drive is made unavailable for any reason throughout our campaign, we will update this page to reflect a similar property that will provide the same housing and resources to the same number of qualified individuals.
