Mission

Although of the 22 veterans a day who commit suicide, the statistical percentage who do so out of desperation from homelessness to provide something for their family is not known; it is the mission of this organization to help keep those veterans alive by helping them maintain their dignity and obtain the housing they need to accommodate their families and any therapy needs they have at home (i.e. physical therapy space and equipment, occupational therapy space and equipment).

Our Story

The Freedom Isn’t Free ride Foundation™ is a non-profit organization which raises money to assist veterans who fall through the cracks and do not qualify for other assistance in getting housing. Married veterans without children are often not able to receive help in securing housing through programs currently in existence to service the veteran population. As a result of experiencing this first hand, Spc. Edgett founded the Freedom Isn’t Free ride Foundation™ to pay it forward and help these veterans. Through donations and fundraising events, the Freedom Isn’t Free ride Foundation™ assists such veterans with deposit monies for home rentals as well as for setting up utility accounts, with the understanding that the funds are to be returned, upon termination of lease or account, to the organization so as to help other veterans.
