Fresh Start for Women is a year old, first opening its doors in Owensboro on November 1, 2016. This transitional housing for Women offers low-cost housing that provides positive “community” support for women trying to get back on their feet. This special 12-apartment complex provides a safe place for those in search of living a life free of addiction.
Carol Adkins and Brenda Sharp have been working with women in recovery for many years. They are both passionate about helping Women in need, especially those who need a Fresh Start in life. Carol noticed that many women complete treatment for alcohol and drug addictions and then returned to their same dysfunctional way of living. Carol along with Cindy Jean, a board member of Fresh Start wanted to do something to help these women. They brought their passions together and developed ‘Fresh Start,’ a transitional housing for women who have been incarcerated or have had some sort of conflict with criminal and civil law.
