Re: Fresh Beginnings Ministries

To: Whom It May Concern:

"Below is a small testimony regarding our experiences with Fresh Beginnings Ministries.

The Tower on Nineteenth is the home of over 300 elderly seniors in Costa Mesa. We have been fortunate enough to meet Bill and his team at Fresh Beginnings Ministries, whom have shown to be one of the most caring and giving groups we have ever been associated with. From the Senior Mentor program that has established companionships and lasting friendships with our seniors to providing three course meals at our resident parties. Fresh Beginnings Ministries has made such a positive impact for our community. Even with months gone by, our residents still talk about the delicious food and how truly special these experiences made them feel. We are working with Bill and Milt who are helping to provide free classes to our senior residents on our Mac computers. So far, we have gotten a great response for that program.

It seems no matter what our need is, Fresh Beginnings Ministries will find a way to fulfill it.

On behalf of the Management and residents of The Tower on Nineteenth, thank you for all you do for our Community, and caring and giving Ministry."

“Having the support of FBM has been an incredible blessing. It has allowed us to provide tangible help to those in need that we never would have been able to do before. We've been able to provide emergency food to families in need and mentor support to those trying to change their life.”

“On behalf of the City of Costa Mesa’s Network for Homeless Solutions (NHS), it has been an honor to work alongside Fresh Beginnings Ministries for the past 2 years. The City is pleased to report that in 2015 alone, Fresh Beginnings provided over 300 hours of service and resources to various individuals in need, many of which are Costa Mesa homeless residents. From distributing approximately 1,560 family packs to reconnecting 16 homeless individuals back to their loved ones and placing 6 others in housing; from training 80 Costa Mesa Life Support mentors to providing approximately 18,576 forms of meal assistance, Fresh Beginnings has truly made an impact not only in matters concerning the homeless and less fortunate, but among local businesses, other nonprofits partners and City personnel. Thus, it is truly a pleasure to be affiliated with such a dynamic organization that seeks to address the complex needs of others through innovation, collaboration and compassion.”

“Fresh Beginning Ministry has been a wonderful blessing to our organization and the families we serve. Bill has a huge heart and is always willing to help. As a result of our partnership with FBM, we have been able to provide some of our families with furniture when they get housed (i.e. couch, dining room table, end table). They have provided clothes, blankets, kitchen utensils, computers and so much more to our families. I greatly appreciate all your assistance and we can't thank you enough for all that you do. Thank you FBM for your continued support.”

“The partnership between the City of Costa Mesa and Fresh Beginnings Ministries took root a few years ago and I am proud to say that through our collective efforts, the homeless, disadvantaged, and underserved members of the Costa Mesa community are better for it. Bill Nelson has been a selfless ambassador of good will, support, nurturing, and sage wisdom. He has mentored a small army of residents and staff to equip them to serve a challenging population more capably than we could have done on our own. Fresh Beginnings has established credibility and integrity to the City of Costa Mesa, and we are grateful for their unwavering diligence in meeting real needs in our community.”
