FreshMinistries is a 501(c)3 outreach organization working to eliminate extreme poverty by empowering communities and individuals to realize their full potential.
Incorporated 1989 and launched in 1994, FreshMinistries focuses on sustainable outreach in core-city Jacksonville and throughout the world, through programs to teach financial literacy, life skills, job preparation, business incubation and other initiatives aimed at enhancing the quality of life in impoverished and crime-ridden neighborhoods.
Current programs include the highly successful Beaver Street Enterprise Center (our core-city business incubator), the LifePoint Career Institute (providing job training and placement for unemployed adults), and Fresh Futures and Fresh Futures II programs, helping at-risk youth (including court-involved youth) gain life skills and job placement.
