The Foster Care Housing We Provide
gives children a secure & nurturing environment
Fresh Start Residential Home for Girls creates a sense of belonging and purpose.
Fresh Start is one of our foster care homes which provides a safe, healthy and nurturing home-type environment for 12 to 17 year old girls in Tampa. We take great pride in providing personal and academic guidance, mentoring and tutoring by trained staff and volunteers. The residents are provided with nourishing home cooked meals that are approved by a registered dietitian, and they also receive clothing and personal hygiene essentials.
- Creating mental stability that leads to an increase in self-esteem
- Realistic goal setting for the future
- Essential life skills that help them get back into society with hope and confidence
The CSEC program can accommodate up to 4 residents. Because of the specialized nature of the care these children require, we assign a higher number of staff, with additional training. We also house these children in such a way to help them adjust and reduce the initial possibility of them running away to rejoin the person or persons who were exploiting them.
We provide CSEC services to children from Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties, as well from a number of child welfare agencies throughout the state of Florida.
We have also continued expanding our homeless initiative through adding a new Independent Housing Quarters; Livingston Residential Home. We provide housing to prevent children aging out of foster care from becoming homeless. The home can accommodate up to 8 residents that can include their partner and children if necessary.
