Special Events

The Freedom House development staff was created to raise funds to help provide innovative treatment programs, family reunification services, and transitional housing to adult men and women who are recovering from substance use disorders.

To raise the needed funds, the development staff runs a series of special events throughout the year. In addition, Freedom House solicits grants from private foundations and large corporations. The development staff further solicits charitable donations from individuals, as well as large contributions from major benefactors. For more information, visit our How to Give page.

Events

Freedom House 5K Run & Walk is held each spring in May. This event is a fun filled morning that will be held in a new location for 2018. Plans are in the making for a great event.

Freedom House – Larry Grantham Charity Golf Outing, held every summer in July, features members of the Super Bowl New York Jets, sports celebrities, and an extraordinary day of golf and dining at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Morris County Recovery Walk is held each September in Morris County. The years event will be held in at Loantaka Brook Reservation starting and finishing at the Kitchel Road pond area.

As a statewide, non-profit organization, Freedom House depends on donations and our own internal fundraising efforts to keep our long term residential treatment and transitional living programs in operation. Internally, The Freedom House Foundation runs several functions every year. But it is not enough. In 2010, more than 4 men in need were turned away for every one accepted into the program, largely due to lack of beds. Your tax-deductible donation will help us to cut down on that number and help more men get a second chance at living a healthy life.
