Freedom House was started in 1992 by a handful of Green Bay churches to address the growing issue of homelessness. Its vision is to provide programs that cause families to be successful in all areas of their lives – spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically, financially and intellectually. Its program involves a step-by-step action plan individualized for each family aimed at obtaining permanent housing and employment, and restoring the family unit. The result is a positive and beneficial environment that encourages families to live more productive, healthy and fulfilling lives. Since its inception, Freedom House has served nearly 1,200 families and more than 2,400 children in the Northeastern Wisconsin area. Currently 10 families are in house with 11 adults and 24 children. Another 43 Brown County families are on a waiting list, with 45 adults and 93 children. More information is available at www.freedomhouseministries.org.
