Freedom Foundation Friends Funds

The Freedom Foundation exists to meet the needs of all active duty, reserve, and honorably discharged military veterans. We provide a place for veterans to interact and network with fellow veterans, including those who need lodging, financial, physical and/or mental/medical assistance with resource information. We establish close interpersonal relationships, trust, and an emotional safety net.

In July 2013, the Iowa Veterans Welcome Center (IVWC) was founded by a group of Vietnam veterans who became aware of a need for veterans helping veterans. In July 2013, a fellow veteran donated a space where veterans could join in camaraderie, interact with other veterans, and network together. In February 2014, the IVWC moved from its initial space to a location in the Veterans Memorial Building. In October 2015, the IVWC was renamed the Freedom Foundation and relocated to 609 Center Point Road NE. In March 2023, the Freedom Foundation will move to an expanded location at 4001 Center Point Rd. NE, Cedar Rapids. The current board of directors comprises of seven military veterans and six civilians.
