Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Homeless & Housing, Homeless Shelters, Human Services, Neighborhood Centers, Youth Development

Mission: : Freedom House Ministries is a nondenominational ministry that helps to serve the needs of the homeless and hopeless families, focusing on the needs of the community where Freedom House is located, in fulfillment of Matthew 25:32-46 For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you took me in.

Results: Over our 21 year history, fully 92% of families that completed our program NEVER returned to homelessness, a miraculous success rate.

Target demographics: All types of homeless families with children

Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 100 families with more than 300 children

Geographic areas served: Brown County, Wisconsin

Programs: Far more than "3 hots and a cot" shelter -- yes, we provide food & shelter, but we also provide programming that zeroes in on the root cause the family became homeless, then custom design a plan to teach them what they need to know to overcome and become self-sustaining members of our community, giving back in droves to help other less fortunate than themselves

There is something special about an organization that, when you try to bless them, you leave feeling more like they did YOU a favor. I am so impressed with the way they run their work with heart, creativity, humility, and excellence. You won't find a more wholistic--or effective--program addressing homelessness out there. I'm proud that it calls Green Bay home. I only wish it were larger, so it could impact more families, since too many have to go on the waiting list. Maybe this is your invitation to join the effort.

The Freedom House is a wonderful opportunity to help families get back on their feet again, assisting their families with opportunities for educational advancement, along with providing the necessities (clothing, food, and household items) to get their lives back on-track. The love and support of those volunteers at the Freedom House, along with the numerous donors makes this all possible.

I was meeting a friend for coffee one evening and she told me that she received an email from Robyn Davis (a friend of hers) that very day. The email was asking for help in locating a Humana employee that would be a charity sponsor for Freedom House. I told my friend that I would think about it. As we drank our coffee and continued our time of fellowship, something inside of me was very excited about this opportunity and I knew this was an excellent opportunity for me.

I contacted Robyn Davis at Freedom House the next day and told her I was interested and she asked me to come in to meet with her and tour the facility.

As I toured Freedom House, Robyn gave me some background information about the organization; I saw the need and knew that I could help out.

As I went into work the next day at Humana I decided to become a Corporate Charity Sponsor for the Freedom House. So I connected with HumanaShares and signed up. In this role I plan, organize, and have several successful fundraising events throughout the year for Freedom House.

I am also very happy to help volunteer or find volunteers anytime during the year for Freedom House.

Celebration of Hope for 2013 was outstanding!

I also volunteer a couple times during the year in meal preparation and serving through my church Destiny Church. It is so great to serve and fellowship with the families at Freedom House.

My kids and I have been volunteering for 3 years to help provide child care. We get the joy of playing with the children who live at the Freedom House while their parents get to take classes. Like they say, the families are getting a hand UP not a hand OUT. The programs at the Freedom House go beyond the basics of food and shelter. They teach the life skills families need in order to NOT return to homelessness. One the most incredible things that the families are taught is to pay their blessings forward. How incredible is that!

I first heard about Freedom House over twenty years ago, as a young Christian; I wanted to make sure that this was a Bible-based organization, and quickly found out that it is! Through the years my support has been in various forms (encouraging staff people, praying, making financial contributions and some material gifts); to me, the Outstanding Hallmark of Freedom House Ministries has always been AND CONTINUES TO BE the Excellent Way in which this ministry lives out the Truth of the Bible in the lives of everyone who comes to them seeking help!!! I feel as though our LORD gives me the privilege of being involved in this crucial ministry, and I recommend Freedom House Ministries to any and all people who truly care about the well-being of people in need, as they offer a most excellent opportunity for people to live their Christian Faith (beyond just speaking about it)!!!!!!!

As a past Board member of Freedom House for many years I've seen lives touched and changed by the dedication and perserverance of the staff and leadership of this wonderful organization. I continue to donate to the ministry and will continue into the future as they represent the "hand up" vs "hand out" philosophy.

Freedom House is an extraordinary organization.....Robin and the Freedom House staff display are beyond dedicated - each member of the group maintains a personal bond with the residents that permeates throughout the organization. The caring, the services provided and the continued relationships with the "graduates" is a priceless gift offered by Robin and the team....it is a honor to be part of the Freedom House family.

The Freedom House is a nonprofit organization that is second to none. Over the years my family has contributed many goods to the Freedom House, knowing that they are being put to good use by other families in need. We do not live close to the Freedom House, but it's so rewarding to drive the distance to help out others who are getting back on their feet.

I go back to the days when Freedom House came to their current location and facility. Gary LaFave was the president. I was invited for a tour and was blown away by what I heard and saw, not only from the staff but from people who were staying there. God has chosen Freedom House for His glory, and has blessed everyone who has been touched by it. Forget all the self-help ways people try in this world, only God can create a NEW person from the inside out. And that is what Freedom House strives to do - create an environment where families can find shelter from the storms of life, to heal, and to be restored to all God would have them to be. Freedom House brings more people into relationship with God than ANY church. I am sure when I stroll over heaven that I will meet hundreds of people who are there because of Freedom House. EVERY Christian in this community should be supporting Freedom House. God bless Robyn Davis and staff!

I am a past board member for Freedom House. Now that I no longer serve on the board, I continue to support Freedom House through charitable donations. I have always held the credibility of Freedom House in the highest regard. The commitment of the staff and volunteers to assist in turning the lives around of families that find themselves in an unfortunate situation is incredible! I tell all that will listen to what Freedom House does for our community and encourage them to donate (time, materials or money). In all the years I've worked with Freedom House, I've never had anyone come back and tell me of a bad experience!

Freedom House is an amazing non-profit with awe-inspiring staff. I feel lucky to have volunteered with them and will continue to do so. They treat everyone like family and really look to cater to the needs of those seeking their services.

I am a board member and volunteer at Freedom House. I love the mission of the organization and the staff's focus on attaining the mission. The focus is not just on giving a homeless family a place to stay, but also to help them with life skills and spiritual guidance to help them be successful when they leave the program. There is a sense of positiveness that pervades the staff that gives dignity to the residents and a sense of hope. It is a great place to volunteer at as you feel you are making a difference for the residents.

I recently went on the board of Freedom House. Before agreeing to do so I wanted to check out what this ministry was about. I went and had a tour from an amazing staff member who was a former resident. The love and concern she and all the other staff I met expressed for the residents was amazing. They provide more than just a place to stay, but programming to help the families succeed, and most importantly love from the staff and volunteers to let them know they are important.

Wow, what can I say about Freedom House Ministries that will even begin to touch on the lives they change? The staff and volunteers at Freedom House Ministries are so dedicated to the mission they serve, and they are really making a difference. By giving residents the tools they need to break the cycle of homelessness, they are changing the Greater Green Bay area one family at a time. I truly believe that Freedom House Ministries will help eradicate homelessness in our area by continuing their mission. Thank you staff and volunteers for creating a positive change!
