Access to affordable housing is a problem for so many.  Area housing markets continue to skyrocket as property values rise without an end in sight.  Without access to affordable housing, many people are left to settle into lower income housing.  Also, many of the forms and applications needed for consideration are several pages long. If an application is turned in missing required information, they are routinely declined.

Advocates can help

Freedom Resource Center works hard to ensure access to housing needs for people with disabilities are met.  There is no charge for advocate services, however, Freedom can’t do it alone. We rely on community support to provide services to people of any age with any disability free of charge.  Fund raising is critical, which is where you come in.  As little as $30 can provide someone resources to access housing needs.  With winter right around the corner, the importance of being able to provide these services cannot be understated.

September 17th

On Tuesday September 7th, Join Freedom Resource Center to celebrate 30 years of  Independent Living at the Avalon Events Center in Fargo.  To help make this night one to remember, we are featuring Dueling Pianos International.  The event will also include a plated dinner, silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.  We will spend a bit of time honoring some amazing people who help us accomplish our mission and hear from some of our advocates.  The evening kicks off at 5pm with a social hour and dinner to be served at 615pm  Tickets are $50 and help to ensure that Freedom Resource Center can continue supporting people with disabilities to live independently in their communities.  Click here for tickets or call 800-450-0459.
