Freedom House is a group of ordinary people who believe that kindness can transform a city. We have two rules: love God and love others. Freedom House is a group of ordinary people who believe that kindness can transform a city. We have two rules: love God and love others. It's a Ministry Centre… where church happens too. We have a community-first mentality and since our inception in 2003, have consistently demonstrated an ability to mobilize a team of volunteers to meet the felt needs of our city. Worship AND Work is a core philosophy of Freedom House.
Out of our downtown, heart-of-the-city/ Laurier University campus location, we developed "The Kindness Project." We simply look for many different ways to both care for needs AND encourage others to do the same through acts of kindness. It started with the creation of our local superhero Captain Kindness and spans everything from free school assemblies, to free street barbeques, to hosting Frosty Fest (One of the largest winter carnivals in Ontario), to developing affordable housing, to 1$ Car Washes where we GIVE people the dollar for the honor of serving them, to neighborhood-based Kindness Campaigns designed to instigate new-found goodwill between neighbors!
Our Kindness Centre weekly meets the basic, practical needs of Brantford families who range from homeless to the growing number of “working poor” who work very hard but are still unable to make ends meet. Our “Superhero in me” elementary school project is a 4-step program that helps classrooms create a culture of kindness; a culture where bullying can’t even begin to take root.
Through a vast array of community initiatives, Freedom House is able to impact more than a third of the population of Brantford in one form or another on average annually. We believe that every person has a uniquely destined role in seeing Brantford become a prosperous, thriving, FREE city. Every member is a minister at Freedom House.

Timeline Photos (Brian here) - So, to see if what I said in church yesterday was true or not, I tried to complain while I was giving thanks to God this morning. It's impossible! The password is… "THANKS"
