“Freedom” is a project where we offer help to many homeless people that have become addicted to drugs and alcohol. Often they have no means of “escape” from addictions. We offer ways to be “free” from addictions and to bring them to a place of self-worth and confidence. This project is significant and necessary because of the amount of addiction that is rising in the homeless population. Please consider a donation today!
