The Big Payback is back, and we are participating!
 
Save this date! 
The Big Payback, a community-wide, online giving day hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, returns on Thursday, May 2, and FreshSTART Columbia is thrilled to be participating!
 
The 2019 charitable event will help to support our programs, as well as, celebrate the good work of participating Middle Tennessee nonprofits, schools, and religious institutions. In the past five years, the region’s generosity was astonishing as our community rallied together to raise a total of $12.5 million for nearly 1,000 area organizations.
 
How does The Big Payback work? Kicking off at midnight on Thursday, May 2, donors can make gifts online to The Big Payback’s participants located in or providing services to the 40 counties of Middle Tennessee. Your contributions to FreshSTART Columbia could be amplified by additional incentives, bonuses, and prizes made possible by The Big Payback sponsors throughout the day.

Naomi Solis comes to FreshSTART Managed Discipleship House!
 
“Coming to Discipleship House is one of the best things that ever happened to me. I have discovered who I am and that I am worthy of a better life than what I was living. It has helped me realize that I am not alone and it is ok to ask for help. I have established a connection with God and met many people I can truly call friends. God has shown me in so many ways that there is a better life ahead of me as long as I trust and follow Him. Coming here is not something I would call my next step in life, but my new beginning”.

Celebrate Recovery is a 12 step Christ-centered recovery program, that focuses on any hurt, habit or hang-up which prevents us from living out our best lives.  
 
We offer a free warm meal to all, then we meet in the Sanctuary to sing and receive medals of accomplishment,  along with hearing testimonials from the FreshSTART community.  After worship, we move to small study groups.  
 
We invite families and offer child care at no charge.
