The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Freedom House is a ministry doing the work of Jesus Christ by meeting the needs of homeless families in Brown County. We are good stewards of God's resources giving all the glory to Him.
Freedom House is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving all types of homeless families with children in the Green Bay/Brown County area - single Moms, single Dads and couples. But we don’t just provide food, clothing and shelter until these families find a place to live, we change lives.
By providing education and counseling; modeling appropriate behaviors and sound family practices; and offering spiritual guidance through our 8 to 12 week Family Life Advancement Program, we help families break the cycle of homelessness and hopelessness and give them the tools they need to become vibrant members of our community; self-sustaining, certainly, but also volunteers with a heart who give back to the community in abundance; moving into a "new normal" of being "givers" rather than "takers."
