About Us
Fresh Start was established in 1999 as an outreach ministry of East Side Church of God . Fresh Start established itself, and remains a vibrant outreach ministry within the City of Swift Current. Due to significant growth, it became necessary for Fresh Start to become its own entity. Therefore, in January, 2013, we officially became Fresh Start Program Inc. Over the years, our mission has not wavered. Ultimately, we continue to reach out to struggling youth, families, and individuals in a meaningful way.

Youth Services

Fresh Start offers youth meaningful alternatives through employment, education, individualized mentoring/support, and housing. Annually, Fresh Start sees approximately 60 youth between the ages of 15 and 29. We work directly with 20 of them. Each youth comes with their own set of complex issues/concerns, and as an organization we have opportunity daily, to touch their lives in some small, special way. Ultimately, our hope is that each youth experience a “fresh start”.

Family Services

Fresh Start, alongside the Ministry of Social Services, works with parents and children to support and promote the well-being of family .Through our in-home services, Family Service Workers teach new skills, model new behaviors, and provide relevant resources to strengthen the family unit. The goal is always to keep the family intact. When, for safety reasons, it is not possible to do so, Fresh Start provides the necessary support to reunite the family.

Community Services

Through the provision of Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen and the Fresh Start Food Bag service, Fresh Start continues with its mission to deliver services to those in need in our community.

  1. Provide a healthy, nurturing environment;
  2. Model and mentor positive behavior;
  3. Instill attitudes of value and self-worth;
  4. Model grace and compassion;
  5. Model responsibility and accountability;
