Hope starts here.
If you are here it is likely that someone you know is in trouble and needs help. Often it's hard to know what to do next. Finding the services and a safe environment to change has become more and more difficult. Often you need to go to several programs to receive all the services necessary to meet your needs.
Freedom through Education strives to provide the highest quality, most comprehensive services available.
It is our goal to give the one in need all the tools necessary to succeed. We'll remove any impediments so the individual can take full control and responsibility for their life. To do this we offer best-in-class housing and programming. Period. Find more about that here,
We partner with SMUD and make our neighborhood SHINE!
We are grateful to be the recipient of the SHINE grant from SMUD this year for the on going work around our flagship apartments for men transitioning out of prison back into society on 6320 MLK Boulevard here in Sacramento.
Q: Why are you doing this? It's not your street.
A: Because we live here too and want it to look nice for everyone.
The SHINE grant enables us to continue doing our jobs making the neighbors proud to live near us in South Sacramento. We use the funds to buy safety equipment and other necessary tools for our men to use while working on clean up day once a month. The men who volunteer with us on that Saturday are treated to a nice BBQ with the staff as they revel in helping their neighbors appreciate where we all live. You've never seen a more grateful man than the one that is out of prison that can now use his hands to help his neighbors. SMUD and SHINE help make that possible!
