FREED Texas (Nonprofit )

Individuals exiting the system come out to a world that is unwilling and ill equipped to provide the most basic needs such as food, shelter, mental or health services, employment and family support.

FREED Texas was born out of a great need to address the multi-dimensional needs of an individual as they strive to reintegrate into a society that has discounted them as citizens.

FREED Texas offers a 9 week program (Remnent of Healing Academy) that addresses these struggles into reintegration: we believe rehabilitation is possible when services are individualized, wholistic, and supportive.

Our Mission
Restore families, transform communities, eliminate recidivism 

Our Vision
Our Vision is a greater American community in which formerly incarcerated individuals are spiritually restored, high-performing, fully committed to living crime free, and have been set free from their negative stigma
