Mission: In july 2006, freedom house admitted its first residents and began the work of changing lives one family at a time. (see schedule o)
Programs: Employment training services: many of the mothers that come to freedom house have never been employed and are in desperate need of job training to help them secure employment capable of providing for their families after leaving freedom house. In response to this need, freedom house opened its first thrift store in greensboro, north carolina on december 18, 2008. The freedom house employment training program helps prepare mothers for locating and securing jobs of their own upon completion of the freedom house program. Among the many skills freedom house residents learn are customer service, organization, time management, task prioritization, and how to balance a successful work life with taking care of a home and raising children. The responsibility of each resident increases as she progresses through the employment training program. Freedom house is expanding its job training program so we can help more mothers find jobs in the future.
residential services: this year freedom house was able to provide thousands of days of sobriety, shelter, and meals to the families in the program. Program participants also received individual counseling, group therapy, reunification with families, employment training, and a variety of life skills classes, such as parenting, nutrition, anger management, financial planning, and codependency. They were provided transportation within the county to medical, legal, and social service appointments. Freedom house helped residents work toward the following nine (9) goals: reunification; drug-free lifestyle; employment training and acquisition; education; social development and support; health care support and disease prevention; legal compliance; independence; and, faith.
