No. The Freedom Centre is a centre for community programs and events, a meeting place for seniors and youth, and a supportive, transitional housing program for veterans and former RCMP.
The Freedom Centre will offer various wellness programs along with community-enhancing initiatives that serve our residents and our neighbourhood.
The Freedom Centre serves the needs of veterans from the Canadian Armed Forces, and former members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
There are no expectations or requirements that residents or users of the Freedom Centre share the same religious beliefs as the Cambridge-Preston Church of the Nazarene.
Yes. As with any member of our community, some residents of the Freedom Centre may have challenges with mental health and addiction.
The Freedom Centre is a unique program that will complement the programs currently offered in the Cambridge area.
The Freedom Centre is an abstinence-based, supportive, transitional housing program.
Not all veterans have PTSD, but some do. Most veterans and former RCMP with PTSD have never engaged in violence.
PTSD alone does not significantly predict any type of physical aggression or violence towards others.
There is no evidence to suggest that veteran housing leads to increased crime in the surrounding neighbourhoods.
We love volunteers! Please feel free to contact us for more information.
