Project Hand-Up is the effort of a Leadership Green Bay Class of 2013 small group, working together within the community to develop connections, gather resources and complete a project that contributes to the overall good of the Greater Green Bay area.This group chose to work with Freedom House Ministries because of their long respected and well documented successes assisting families out of homelessness. Specifically this project involves:
*Reflooring their resource area-classroom/library/childcare mulitpurpose space
*Providing new tables,chairs, and organizational pieces to enhance functionality
*Upgrade their computer systems- new laptops & large screen projection TV
*Repaint & update interior of classroom/library/childcare
*Supply supplemental resources to support occupational training, parenting, GED preparation,parenting and child development materials, personal and professional self improvement resources,spiritual encouragement& motivational materials.
We are asking for public participation in this project. The public can assisst in various ways:
*Contribute to our Capital campaign-fund raising to be coordinated March’13
*Provide “in kind donations” of time or business services

Wondering what to do for lunch or dinner? Stop by Curly’s Pub at Lambeau Field all day TODAY! 20% of all restaurant sales will be donated to purchase hygiene and cleaning products for local families in need. Freedom House receives a portion of the items collected which are used for our families “in house” and those we serve through our Aftercare program.
Our services are offered to our families free of charge, but there is a daily cost to providing a home for up to 12 families with children. Here’s where you can help. Currently, we are running low on MEAT (especially ground beef and chicken), BLEACH and FLOOR CLEANER. If you can help spread the word or help meet the need, we would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for your continued generosity and for making a difference in the lives of our families and our community!
