The Freeman Project House
The Freeman house is a place where survivors can live a Free Life.
We aspire to provide a home environment that is free from judgment, encouraging growth, and inspiring women to thrive.
In the Spring of 2017, Barbara Freeman, Founder of the Freeman Project, worked in collaboration with Authentic Life Ministries to open a sober home for women who have been trafficked.
The home was remodeled and furnished thanks to the generous support of volunteers. The home has a maximum of 4 beds available and a “house-mom” who lives on site.
After in-patient rehabilitation treatment services, survivors often do not have a safe place to shelter while they prepare to live independently. The Freeman Project Home provides a safe place and support during that pivotal transition time. We help women get the documentation they need, sign up for state benefits, and find long-term housing.
Columbus has very few women’s sober homes. Most require an upfront payment of hundreds of dollars before your stay can begin.
If we have an available bed, and a woman fits our other criteria, we do not ever place immediate payment as an obstacle before residency can take place. One reason we can successfully continue to offer this community necessity is that we have a house mom who is committed to providing a safe and structured home, day and night.
It is the mission of The Freeman House to provide survivor informed care and build authentic and lasting relationships. Our program provides women transitional housing, necessities, life skills, and career opportunities.
Our goal is to empower the women of The Freeman Project to become SurThrivers and contributing members of our community.
We are so appreciative of all the volunteers who have continually worked to better the lives of the women of the Freeman Project. A special thanks to:
