We provide food, shelter and the power to change for people in crisis.
Freedom House has been serving Richmond’s homeless and working poor for 28 years and has developed a strong and responsive continuum of programs for people in crisis that engages individuals and families in services, sustains them through our feeding and shelter programs, and supports them through their return to independence. The continuum of care we provide helps us form a partnership built on trust, respect and dignity with those we serve.
Founded in 1983 by a group of volunteers, Freedom House began by serving an evening meal to over 150 people each night - now called the Conrad Center Soup Kitchen. As other needs were identified in the homeless services system, Freedom House responded by opening two transitional housing facilities for single adults – The Community Shelter (1987) and Sean’s Place (1993).
