ABOUT FRESH START COFFEEHOUSE
Fresh Start CoffeeHouse is a nonprofit venture dedicated to helping formerly incarcerated individuals and addiction survivors with meaningful employment. We desire to support the rebuilding of lives with each employee through discovery of their personal purposes, gifts and callings. Our vision is to empower those who come to us to participate fully in the economic and social life of our community. We believe such employment leads to financial freedom which is instrumental in the healing journey.
To provide a bridge to hope, restoration and dignity for discounted, marginalized members of the Monroe community who are ready to redirect their lives and become contributing members of society.
To assist each person in the discovery of their personal purpose, gifts and callings which, for whatever reasons, have been stifled and unrecognized. And, through compassion, restore them to themselves.
To empower those who come to us to participate fully in the economic, social, and political life of our community.
