Freedom House is a tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization started by a handful of concerned Christian individuals in 1992.  For 26 years, Matthew 25:35 has provided the foundation for our work:

…For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a  stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me.

Matthew 25:35

The mission of Freedom House is to equip families with the skills and resources needed to become self-sufficient and to maintain self-sufficiency. Freedom House serves a diverse population of homeless families with children through its emergency shelter on the east side of Green Bay and its campus on the west side of Green Bay called The Bridge. Freedom House began as a four-bedroom house on N. Irwin Avenue in Green Bay and served four families at a time. In 2003, Freedom House acquired and moved to its current shelter location at 2997 St. Anthony Drive in the Schmitt Park neighborhood of Green Bay. Up to 12 families or 50 people reside at the east side location at any one time. In 2014, Freedom House expanded its reach to the far west side of Green Bay where its campus, called The Bridge, is located at 840-842 N. Taylor Street. 9 families reside in the subsidized apartments or a transitional living program called The Bridge.
