I was born here in Phoenix Arizona in 1963. I was in and out of both jail and prison many times in my life. I was released for the final time in January of 2008, with very little money and no family I went to a half way house in Mesa Arizona. I knew that something in my life needed to change, roughly 60 days after my release I met a man named Bennie. After explaining my troubled past I asked him to give me a chance and a fresh start. I was working for him 7 days a week for 12-14 hours a day to earn my chance at a fresh start and a new beginning in life. Since then I have become a fully functioning member of society and feel its my duty to give back to those in the same position.

My Story

After that chance given to me that kind and generous man Bennie showed the compassion I need in my life at the time I realized it was my duty and calling to help those in the same situation I was in. so I worked hard and did everything i could to save up and start what is now know as Fresh Start-New Beginning. Finally after 2 years of hard work and dedication in 2010 i had managed to save up the money I needed to found my organization. Though it first started out as a charity thrift store known as great deals A to Z, it has now blossomed into so much more than i could have ever hoped for. Evolving into a more broad network consisting of many parts from mental health services care,  job training, and financial management skills as well as housing and so much more! The best part about it all, none of it would have been possible with out help from the community and through support from people like your self! Together we CAN make a difference!


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
