A vital factor in men’s recovery from alcohol and drug addiction is providing a supportive atmosphere that allows them to get back into a normal routine. One of the ways Freedom Farm strives to do this is by providing opportunities for our men to work for several hours every day.

While men are in the Safe House, one of the major ways we do this is through our local firewood deliveries.

The ministry purchases cut trees from a local forester and the men cut and split the trees and then deliver the firewood to homes and businesses in and around Boone, NC.

In addition to providing the men meaningful work to do, fire wood sales also provide a significant source of funds to help Freedom Farm operate throughout the Winter and early Spring.

What Happened

On September 19, 2017, several men were delivering firewood along one of the many hilly, windy country roads around Boone when the brakes failed on their truck. Luckily, no one was injured, but the wreck totaled the truck and trailer and damaged some fencing along the road.

Firewood season is just beginning and our capability to deliver the wood we’ve cut has been severely reduced. We’ve begun using another pickup truck we had within the ministry to carry to load, but it can only carry one half a cord of firewood instead of the full cord we could carry in the old wood trailer.

Using the truck for wood deliveries also impacts our ability to service our lawn care clients and pick up food for the ministry.

How Can You Help?

As you pray for Freedom Farm, please pray for this urgent need.

Here is our specific need. If you can help in any way, we’d be very grateful.

  1. A 3/4 ton, 4×4 pickup. This needs to be a F-250/350 or equivalent to be able to handle the weight of the firewood and trailer.
  2. A utility trailer with walls/sides that can carry one full cord of cut firewood. This would measure approximately 4 foot high by 4 foot wide by 9 foot long.

Help Us Reach Our Goal

We have set a goal of $15,000 that we’d like to raise to replace these items as soon as possible.

Program Fees

In order to be accepted, applicants must commit to complete the entire 1 year program and pay the following program fees:

$750 program entry fee. This fee covers the first 4 weeks in the program and must be paid prior to starting. Applicants can either pay before arriving at Freedom Farm or as part of the check in process.

Beginning in the 5th week after arrival, residents are charged $150 per week for the remainder of their stay in the program. These fees must be paid by electronic withdrawal from a checking account or with a debit card. Cash and check payments will not be accepted.

All program fees are non-refundable.

Financial Sponsors

If an applicant cannot afford to pay the fees, a financial sponsor may pay on their behalf. The sponsor must fill out the ‘Financial Sponsor Agreement’ that is attached to the program application. Sponsors should be prepared to make the weekly payments for 3 to 4 months after the applicant enters the program.

Once a resident enters the third phase of our program and finds a job, all financial sponsorships will end and the resident will be expected to pay the $150 per week fee himself. It takes between 3 and 4 months in the program before residents are able to seek employment.

Freedom Farm does not provide referrals to financial sponsors, offer scholarships or offer reduced fees.

How to Start the Process

Your first step is to fill out and submit the program application. Once we get your application, we will call you for a phone interview. Our goal is to call you for a phone interview the same day we get your application, but sometimes we can’t respond until the next day.

If it’s been more than 36 hours since you submitted your application and you haven’t heard from us, please call and check.

We'll be happy to answer your questions by phone before you submit your application, but submitting it first will speed the acceptance process and allow us to better answer your questions.
