True Freedom Touches Over 38,000 in 2013



     2013 was a banner year for True Freedom, as the Lord opened the door for over 38,000 individuals to be touched. With the explosion of new volunteers added to our ministry and the rapid increase in programming offered across the state, 21,033 inmates participated in our services or classes, with 1,961 making a first-time profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.


     Our Homeless outreach also saw significant growth in new volunteers, which allowed us the privilege of serving over 16,000 hot meals on the streets of Cleveland each and every Saturday night throughout the year. Our teams on the streets saw 521 men and women either make a first-time profession of faith or rededicated their lives to serving Jesus Christ.


     Our Nursing Home outreach and our Addiction Recovery program touched an additional 2,000 individuals for the Kingdom. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness to show Himself mighty.

Governor Signs Bill at True Freedom


     The Governor of Ohio, John Kasich, visited the offices of True Freedom Ministries.  The governor chose to perform the bill signing ceremony here because it is “the headquarters of True Freedom Ministries” (Call and Post, July 18, 2012).

     The bill revises Ohio law so that unintended penalties for ex-offenders are minimized. Ex-offenders can achieve “Certificates of Qualifications for Employment” and obtain limited driving privileges for work purposes. In addition, ex-offenders meeting certain criteria can also obtain cosmetology, optical, construction and security guard credentials.   All this allows ex-offenders to be able to earn a living and more easily reintegrate into the community.

     True Freedom is committed to using this law to help inmates re-enter society as productive, godly member of society.
