At Freedom House, our mission is to help individuals find their passion and purpose through housing and employment. Our founders, Ty and Jennifer Fretz-Smith are committed to helping veterans and individuals coming out of jail find their calling and personal freedom.

We have been offered an amazing opportunity. We are excited to announce the opening of our next home. A ladies house that will be dedicated to women coming out of jail and freed from homelessness. In a secure area, Freedom 4 will be equipped to serve and counsel these women into readjusting their lives and coming back into society. Even more importantly, Freedom’s goal is to help these women find freedom from their trauma, hurts, and equip them to walk in their God-given purpose.

Freedom’s launch is scheduled for September. To make this happen, we need your support! Any donation of money or time has an impact into dozens of women’s lives. Even a donation of $10 goes a long way. We are so excited to partner with you!

BCS has a heart for ensuring the success of individuals with disabilities, those in recovery, and veterans. One of our programs has flourished into an opportunity to help all three of these populations. Freedom House is an extension of BCS that offers housing, rehabilitation, and focused redirection for individuals who struggle with recovery and/or are coming from the judicial system. Many of our participants are veterans and may identify with various types of disabilities.

Our team assists men, women, and veterans in identifying personal goals relating to education, employment, health, entitled benefits, spirituality, relationships, and community participation. At Freedom House, they learn the skills to find freedom in their recovery struggles, how to get and keep a job, and how to live and do life in a community. We are so excited to currently offer this service in Bradenton, Florida. Program fees are based on income.
