Effective September 28, 2018
Freedom Village is a Bible based, Christ honoring, faith based ministry. The base costs as of this date to house, educate, and care for a young person including surrounding that young person with a Godly, safe, well staffed environment to change their life is $4,700.00 month.
Since its origin thousands and thousands of young people have come here broken, hopeless in their own minds and seeking a “second chance” or in many cases it was their “last chance” to change their lives---Freedom Village is a place of miracles. It is our policy that “no young person will ever be turned away because of money”---but, it is equally important that parents/guardians participate to the level they are able in their child's care.
All parents are required to meet with our financial department and show proof of income. The level of your participation is determined by your income! Our goal, and hopefully that of all parents, is to see your young person become the miracle God desires them to be---this is a partnership in miracles.
Base costs: A non-refundable $100 deposit is required of all before a intake appointment is set.
At intake: A one-time $500 entrance fee is required. IF a parent/guardian shows proof they are absolutely unable to pay this fee we will then place your youngster on our “waiting list” until a sponsor is found to provide the $500.00
Personal account money: A deposit of $150 is required at intake to be placed in your young persons personal account for such items which may be necessary for their basic needs: Example toiletries, paper, pens, snack shop to name a few and if for instance they were to damage something, break a window etc. This account is monitored and limited and any extra out of the ordinary expenses will be directed towards you before giving your young person the go ahead---(for instance, we will never approve your youngster buying a $300 pair of sneakers, etc.)
Box money: We require a $100 deposit be left with us at the time your young person is accepted into the program in case their comes a time we have to excuse them and send them home for due cause. History has taught us the best avenue to facilitate this is: your young person packs their personal items, they sign a form disclosing that they packed it, it is all there and then we ship the boxes to your home.
Bus/Airfare: At the time of your child's acceptance in the program we require that you leave on deposit sufficient funds to buy either a bus ticket (if acceptable) or an airline ticket to send your young person home. Obviously, this is variable and depends on your location.
By way of review: A $100 deposit to secure your intake interview.
A one-time intake fee of $500 or arrangements for us to find a Sponsor .
Personal account, Box and return bus or airline fees.
And a monthly amount for support mutually agreed upon---for a on going monthly basis.
As previously stated, this is a partnership---I am sure your realize there are many costs involved in running a ministry of this magnitude--- our insurances alone are tens of thousands a year, the electric bill is over $35,000 a month, staff, food, medical, schooling---this list goes on and on---so if you will work with me, we certainly will work with you! And may God be honored and glorified!
