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.
The Freedom Foundation is a grassroots 501(c)3 Non-Profit Veterans Service and Support Organization. Our Veterans Center is located at 609 Center Point Road NE in Cedar Rapids,
Iowa 52402.Our Veterans Center has numerous amenities for our Veterans, which includes a pool table, two big screen TV's, a small library, a computer lab, a poker table and a large conference table where our Veterans enjoy coffee, snacks and other refreshments, while reveling in the camaraderie of their fellow Veterans.
The Freedom Foundation provides numerous programs and services to our Veterans.These programs and services includes a Food Pantry, administration of a Employment Placement Program entitled "Ready To Serve", the operation of the "Veterans Temporary Housing/Shelter Program" for our homeless and displaced Veterans, a Veterans Emergency Financial Assistance Fund and our hosting of a free weekly Thursday luncheon, serving our Veterans a well deserved "home cooked meal".
