Project Safe Start
Our journey began in 2019 when we picked up one woman on release day from Perryville Prison in Goodyear, AZ. The community came together and provided so many necessities for this woman. However, one woman named April dropped off 77 backpacks with a note attached stating, "I think your going to do this again." That was the moment God entered the picture and Project Safe Start began. We have since followed the lead of Christ and each year we learn, grow and help more women than the year prior! In 2022, 232 women came through our program!
WE BELIEVE EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE!!
Project Safe Start has partnered with two private Christian transitional homes located in Peoria, AZ.
We provide a New Backpack, Clothing, Shoes, and Full-sized toiletries for each woman year-round. We help with additional needs along the way. At Thanksgiving, we provide for a full Thanksgiving Dinner! Christmas is our big celebration. We have a Christmas celebration including : The Gospel, Christmas music, gifts, homemade Christmas cookies, and more! Often we have heard that the women have not celebrated Christmas in many years and some have NEVER had a Christmas. Through the generosity of the community and our partners, we are able to do so much for them.

We Love A Success Story!
Will everyone succeed coming out of prison? No, in fact many will not. We believe everyone deserves a second Chance. Read this success story and see why one of our ladies told us, "Keep doing what your doing because we are worth it!"
