The Freeman Project is a non-profit organization in Columbus, Ohio. It was founded by Barbara Freeman, a survivor of sex trafficking. Her lived experience of exiting “the life” she knew for 23 years, gives her a unique perspective on providing help to others who are similarly struggling. Her activism in the anti-human trafficking community in Central Ohio has led to personal connections with providers and agencies and intimate knowledge of the resources they can provide.
In 2017 the organization opened The Freeman Project House.
The Freeman Project is part of the 501 (C)(3) non-profit entity Authentic Life Ministries (ALMs), they generously take care of the necessary accounting and board oversight, so The Freeman Project team can focus on serving survivors at the sober home and out in the community.
