Our Mission

True Freedom is an independent, evangelical, non-profit organization dedicated to reaching those locked behind steel doors in jails and prison all across Ohio, those trapped in homelessness on the streets of Cleveland, those abandoned in nursing homes all across Northeast Ohio, and those shacked in addictions with the message of the True Freedom that is found only in Jesus Christ.  

True Freedom Reaches over 40,000 in 2014

Through the grace of God, True Freedom experienced exponential growth in 2014, touching over 40,000 lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ!

The prison ministry was blessed to expand in several new directions.  Throughout the year True Freedom entered into negotiations with Cuyahoga County, to place a full-time chaplain in the Juvenile Justice Center in Cleveland – free-of-charge to the county, to reach the youth with the gospel.  The many hours of ground work paid off, and in October True Freedom hired a new Chaplain, Brian Luton, who daily ministers at the Juvenile Justice Center in Cleveland, touching children's lives.   Brian joined Rae Borders, who currently serves as True Freedom’s female chaplain at that facility.

Earlier in the year True Freedom was approached by officials at the Grafton Correctional Institution and asked to take over programming for the Faith Dorm at the Grafton Reintegration Center.  We now weekly offer the Alpha Course, Reformers Unanimous, a Christ-Based Alcoholics Anonymous program, a mentorship program, worship services and Bible studies at that one facility, while continuing our weekly programming at Lorain Correctional, Grafton Correctional, Mansfield Correctional, Richland Correctional, Northeast Correctional, and the Cleveland Justice Center.

In addition to the new opportunities, God also blessed us with dozens of new volunteers, with the result that over 25,000 inmates attended our offerings with nearly 3,000 making a profession of faith in Jesus Christ!

True Freedom Partners with Cuyahoga County Juvenile Justice Center

After nearly a year in the development, True Freedom has entered into an agreement with the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court system to provide chaplain services FREE-OF-CHARGE at the Juvenile Detention Center located at the corner of 93rd and Quincy in Cleveland, Ohio.  The facility has been without a chaplain since the county de-funded the position over three years ago.

In order to meet the spiritual needs of the juveniles housed in the facility, True Freedom has placed two chaplains: Brian Luton to minister to the boys, and Rae Borders to minister to the girls.  In addition to providing direct ministry, True Freedom is now responsible for all Religious Services that take place at the facility.

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 members of society.
