The Fresh Start Program offers assistance through Work for Shelter to people who are transitioning back into society from incarceration or through recovery programs. Through this program, people are offered a one-time, weekly rent payment at a local shelter or half-way program in exchange for 12 hours of volunteer work at the Christian Service Center. In 2020, CSC helped 12 people by providing one week of rent. This program is an excellent way for people transitioning back into society to begin by working as a volunteer in a program designed to help and assist people with many needs.
The Fresh Start Program continues to evolve as we reach out to and encourage our neighbors toward healthy, independent lifestyles, while embracing them with the love shown to us by Jesus Christ.
