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. This fee is not refundable under any circumstances.
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 credit/debit card. Cash and check payments will not be accepted. Weekly payments stop if the resident chooses to leave the program.
If an applicant cannot afford to pay the fees, a financial sponsor must 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 as long as the resident stays at Freedom Farm Ministries.
Once a resident enters the third phase of our program and finds a job, we encourage them to take over the weekly payments from their sponsor. Whether this actually happens or not, is completely between each resident and their sponsor. It takes between 3 and 4 months in the program before residents are able to seek employment.
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.
