Freedom House; a safe place for ex prisoners

Freedom House, a nonprofit program operating under the umbrella organization Prison Fellowship Belize, is a Christ-centered facility that ministers to former prisoners, assisting them with opening bank accounts and teaching them how to walk with Christ, so that they can return as productive citizens of society.

Since its inception in 2008, Freedom House has ministered to over a hundred people. But like all nonprofit organizations, money is always an issue.

To help with the organizations financial endeavors, Freedom House is having a barbeque and garage sale on Saturday 21st and is asking for the public’s support.

“We’re having a fund-raiser, a barbeque sale and a garage sale, on Saturday the 21st.  We’ll start at 8:30 in the morning and go to 2 p.m. in the afternoon. 

If you want to pick up your food, you can start doing that around 10 o’clock in the morning.  Then for those who live in the Belmopan area, you can pick your foor up at Step Of Faith Church at 12 o’clock.

We would like to have you come by and check us out and see us, and check out the garage sale.

The meat that we are selling is chickens that we raised ourselves.  We got some baby chicks from Spanish Lookout.

I think this is a Belize problem with the crime and the drugs, so I think it’s Belizeans that should get behind it, and support it.  We do get some support from the U.S., but I would prefer that Belizeans would support it, because it’s a Belizean problem.”


The fundraising event is taking place at Freedom House in Roaring Creek Village, on Saturday February 21st.
