In addition to the detailed list below, you can also view our Amazon Wish List for current onoing needs. This option allows you to purchase items and have them shipped and delivered directly to Freedom House. (Be sure to sign-up for Amazon Smile, too! Details below.)
One of the services Freedom House provides is off-site housing to eligible residents, filling up to ten apartments. As you can imagine, moving from our shelter into their own apartment is a big step for our residents, especially with a very limited support system beyond Freedom House. In an effort to give this transition more meaning, Freedom House fully furnishes each apartment with essential furniture and household items. Our goal is to furnish each apartment as we would furnish our own home. A significant barrier, however, is limited financial resources.
