ATTENTION DONORS: Our on-line donation page is under repair. Donations are still coming through our site even though the page looks unusual. We apologize for the trouble and want you to know we appreciate your donations. On behalf of our families, Thank you for your continued support.
Chances are someone in your neighborhood or circle of friends is one of the multitudes living paycheck to paycheck, unable to overcome any unexpected turn of events – or maybe it’s you. Freedom House is here to help.
According to Federal Government statistics, more than 70% of Americans are one or two paychecks away from being homeless – 70%!!! And that was BEFORE the recent economic downturn that left so many people out of work. Families represent 40% of the homeless population, and it’s the fastest growing segment. The face of homelessness in Brown County is made up of hardworking, committed people longing to overcome their financial, and often family, crises but unable to do so on their own.
Thanks to the generous support of people like you, Freedom House is able to serve all types of homeless families with children in the Green Bay/Brown County area – single Moms, single Dads and couples – and 92% of the people who come through our doors never return to homelessness! Now that’s a success rate worth touting.
The truth is, we can only succeed because of a capable staff, a dedicated board of directors, invaluable volunteers, a committed community of givers, an innovative program approach and a great big God – they are the true heroes behind Freedom House!
We don’t just provide food, clothing and shelter until these families find a place to live, we change lives. Bottom line, we help families break the cycle of homelessness and hopelessness by giving them the tools they need to become vibrant members of our community; self-sustaining, certainly, but also volunteers with heart who give back to the community in abundance; moving into a “new normal” of being “givers” rather than “takers.” Come join us, won’t you, in making a difference in our community!
