Freedom House has an extraordinarily rich history of addressing issues of poverty, educational achievement and social justice. The organization has a sixty year history of working on many issues impacting communities of color and historically underserved neighborhoods such as urban renewal, racial segregation and educational issues including disparities in academic achievement which have a long term negative impact on students of color. Understanding that solutions are complex, Freedom House has created innovative solutions. We achieve our mission through the provision of: targeted educational programs (REACH Institute), civic engagement programming (the Snowden Center for Civic Engagement and Action) and community resources for life long learning.
