BILL experienced life from a wheel chair after a tragic accident at age 2. To attend summer camp at WKU, volunteers had to learn to catheterize Bill at lunch time every day. Ruth and Lori said yes.  It worked! Bill played baseball, picked blueberries, and went boating with his new friends. 

Freedom Factory History

Since 1987, volunteers have been changing the world through The Freedom Factory.  As volunteers give freely of their time, talents and resources, freedom blossoms - time after time - life after life - child after child.   Creating FREEDOM - ONE CHILD AT A TIME.        That's our shared priority. 

NICHOLAS - AGE 5

His earliest memory is coming home from kindergarten, hearing his mother screaming, waking up in the hospital after his father beat him mercilessly, then disappeared from their lives. As an adolescent, Nick turned to drugs and shoplifting, landing in juvenile detention.         Sam changed Nick's life by teaching him aquaponics, expecting the best of Nick, and letting him know he has a job waiting for him one day at Sam's urban farm store.
