Kenzie - Transitions graduate
My life was bad, I had no hope...Since coming to Safe Haven at Freedom for Youth, I've finished high school, I found Christ, I'm now a child of God, and I've now got a job and hope to go to college. I found love, acceptance, and a family that I've never had before.

I love coming to Freedom for Youth in Johnston because it is so much fun!
Julie Tenold - Perry Volunteer
I volunteer at Freedom because I want every child to have the opportunity to hear about Jesus. I also want them to know there are adults that care about them and want to see them succeed. It is so rewarding to see them excited about being there and excited to learn!
Beth - Des Moines Volunteer
Volunteering at Freedom has become one of the highlights of my week! I thank God each day for the friends I have made and for the children who I see growing and changing because of knowing about God's love.

I love to work with people who believe that the best way to effect change is to just jump in and do it. Our kids come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, much of which is incredibly unkind. To involve yourself in the life of another and to witness the change God makes as a result of simply caring for these "little ones" is truly life changing. Paul tells us that we, as God's workmanship, were created for good works and as a Freedom volunteer, we just jump in and do it. God receives the glory, the kids find love and respect, and we get to be a part of the thing…it doesn't get any better than that.

We knew God was changing and working in the lives of the kids at Freedom for Youth. What we didn’t know was how He was going to change our hearts through serving... We feel blessed to be a part of Freedom and to be building relationships with leaders, volunteers, and youth for eternity.
