Freedom Foundation,

    I just want to say that the Freedom Foundation has been a God sent to me and my family. if it wasn't for Chuck and Jan, I wouldn't be able to move into a bigger apartment. My family and friends weren't able to help me in funding the money for deposits and I thought that moving wasn't going to be possible. I spoke to my case manager with the VA, Cory and he suggested that the Freedom Foundation may be able to help me. Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart.

Freedom Foundation,

     I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your assistance. From time to time there are Veterans like myself that fall short. I'm grateful that Veterans help Veterans. We look out for each other.

The Freedom Foundation, in an effort to help me, has generously offered to pay my truck payment for one month!!, words can't begin to describe how much of a help this will be for me! Other VET organizations say they will help, but end up giving false promises. FF came thru!!. THANK YOU SO MUCH FREEDOM FOUNDATION!!!.

If not for the freedom Foundation I would be "on the street" trying to survive or waiting to die. I am a 71 Yr Old who's already had triple bypass surgery and has a very bad back. There is no way I would be able to survive that. Thank God the Freedom Foundation is here for everyone. I am a retired Career Social Worker who spent the past 45 years helping others. When it came to finding the help I needed it seemed nearly impossible. Thank you so much for being here for me and so many others.

It means a great deal to my family that the freedom guy is helping my family over this water

bill, my uncle requires alot of laundry to be done.

I am very grateful for operation Freedom help with rent assistance. I am very honored to be a veteran and appresiate all services that are available to us. this partial rent payment will help me get squared with my landlord and get back on my feet.


Susanne F.


Without assistance my landlord would serve me with an eviction notice and I would be homeless again. I have been housed at Commonwealth since april, i do have some income but I got behind on my utilities due to paying medical expenses due to medications and being in the VA hospital 4 times in the last 9 months. Planning to meet w/CRRC to adjust medication costs.

The Freedom Foundation helped me and my family it is totally appreciated. They helped us when we truly needed it.

We could still have our electricity on and my wife's electric wheel chair could be charged,and we would be able to get it repaired!, If it wasn't for the Freedom Foundation we would have to choose which problem was more important!

I had no idea that such a program as the Freedom Foundation existed until this week, Once I contacted Chuck there, I was given hope that there was a day and a way that I could obtain help with my situation. 

My hopes turned into reality today. I very much appreciate the help of this foundation and the people that run it, I hope, in the future I can be of some kind of assistance for this program.

I certainly will try to be a regular participant here now that I know it exists.


Ronald M.


I really thank you guys for the assistance, It means everything to me and my family, It means a place for me and my family to live and have a little more stability in this volatile time of my life. Thank you for taking away this stressful situation and I will be eternally grateful. Much Love.


Cameaka S. 


To whom it may concern:

I really appreciate the assistance from these guys, because without there help this matter would have gotten out of hand. and would have put me even farther in debt with this company, " to the point I would have had a real problem catching up".

So I'm grateful for the help, and you guys are great, God Bless you! You do what needs to be done when needed-not after the fact- "you know what I mean"!

This makes me proud to be a vet.


Ricky M.


Thank you to the Freedom Foundation! you guys were instrumental in helping me get to Cedar Rapids. Gave me nourishment and a safe place to hang out.

I have been treated with such great respect its beyond words. 

The Foundation has played a pivotal role in helping me secure an apartment.

God Bless all of you, and God Bless America!

without the Freedom Foundation I and my wife and child would be homeless. This is the second time they have been a tremendous help with funds, food,  and support.

this foundation has plenty of resources to call upon. the people here have giant hearts and have the Vets interest in mind!!          Thank you!

The Freedom Foundation was able to give us a little light in our darkest hour. They may not be able to fix it all, But they gave us hope.

They put a roof over our heads, food in our bellies and a very decent place to shower. FF were really the only ones to help

 and they pushed us to accept their help when we were to proud to ask.

We are greatful  and hope that someday we can pay it forward.


wife of a Vet, 

Cassie K,



Freedom Foundation is a wonderful organization ,they are very welcoming. Freedom Foundation was able to help me when I couldn't find anyone else.

I would use Freedom Foundation again and I will use word of mouth to let people know they are hear. I am so glad I met them, I had a wonderful experience.


Renee J.




The fact that the Freedom Foundation was able to assist me is a critical, overwhelming help. When I was feeling down and out they were there for me. I would under any and all circumstances support the Foundation and Veterans at any time.


Tom M. 



The help I received from the Freedom Foundation in the last month with my phone bill and electric bill helps greatly. It allows my wife and me to have our electricity and phones so we can have it for my wifes medical conditions.


Chuck C.



Freedom Foundation is excellent, when I was in dire need of assistance they are there to assist and get me in the right direction, outstanding!


Marco D.



The assistance I received from the Freedom Foundation to restore phone service will allow me to seek permanent housing. I am currently in a homeless shelter without phone access.

Service will allow me to network with family and friends to obtain housing, as well as various agencies that may assist me in my search. I am truly grateful for the help from the Freedom Foundation.       Thank You!

The Freedom Foundation  was formed by a group of local military veterans who saw the need for a "Veterans Helping Veterans" approach to navigating the challenges of everyday life after serving our country.  Our organization has now expanded to veterans and civilians working together to make a difference in the lives of those who have served.
