About fresh start
Fresh Start Center of Shelbyville and Bedford
County has been called by God to be a refuge for men who have been in
jail and want a changed life. We believe this is possible only through
Jesus Christ. The Bible says that everyone has sinned and come short of
His Glory, but that everyone deserves a new beginning where old habits
pass away and all things become new. Through this change, homes are
restored, hate is replaced with love, and crime is a distant word. The
home stands upon the word of God, as life is very valuable and given by
God. We are here to make a difference in the lives and homes of this
community. Fresh Start is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Fresh Start Center's purpose will
be carried out by a board of directors, duly elected, using bylaws,
rules, regulations, policies, and procedures as guidelines. The program
is and will continue to be developed using moral and spiritual
guidelines which will help promote character in the individuals accepted
into the program and will make them assets, not liabilities, to society.
Fresh Start Center of Shelbyville, Bedford County (FSCSBC) is tailored
for those who recognize they have a life-controlling problem and need
assistance in a structured environment that is firmly rooted in
FSCSBC is an eighteen-month program focusing on spiritual growth, work
