Stats: Year in Review 2018

 Dear True Freedom Partner,

Thank you so much for supporting us this year.  Your partnership is vital to the rapid growth of True Freedom Ministries.  Below are a few highlights through the end of October 2018:


• In January 2018, True Freedom Ministries was recognized as the 2017 ODRC Organization of the Year.  This award is the highest honor the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections offers to a community partner for making the largest impact on the lives of the inmates and staff and for bringing about culture change within the penal system statewide.


True Freedom Enterprises was launched and our pre-release, work release program is giving inmates a second chance to find meaningful employment.


• With over 20,000 homeless people in Cleveland, our Homeless Ministry fed 12,689 people, with 28 people making first-time commitments and rededications to Christ.


• With the heroin epidemic on the rise, 2,728 people attended our addiction recovery programming with 135 first time commitments and rededications to Christ.


• Our prison ministry is growing, averaging 167 services and programs a month. We had 37,868 inmates attend our services, with 3,616 inmates making first-time commitments and rededications to the Lord Jesus.


 God is clearly opening doors and expanding True Freedom’s influence. With this expansion, expenses have increased. Would you prayerfully consider making a one-time year-end donation to help True Freedom spread the good news of the Gospel and serve the least of these in Northeast Ohio (Matthew 25:40)?
