About Fresh Start Sober Living Housing & Outreach House- Shelton, WA

Our goal is to provide clean and sober shared housing, while you work on your daily living skills. Please read through and understand the following house rules to ensure your stay is a successful and productive experience.

Our Mission

The  mission at the heart of Fresh Start Housing is to provide a clean, safe and and alcohol/drug-free environment for those who need or desire it. To help our tenants achieve their goals we provide weekly counseling, encouragement and resource knowledge in an effort to prepare them for the next positive phase of their life. We strive to offer our brand of housing and service throughout Washington State, one county at a time.

Our History

Tim and John became aware of the community need for clean and sober shared housing after attending a Kiwanis seminar on the subject. In addition, Tim had spent almost a year homeless in his youth and understood how difficult making progress in your life could be without the basic provisions of shelter and warmth. The first residence was purchased in fall of 2012.
