Denton Freedom House was founded in the family home of Jeremy and Karen Adams. Their passion for the lost was birthed out of their own story of redemption and the compassion they felt for those who are rejected, hopeless, and written off by society. DFH began by taking in one man back in 2004, and has grown into a ministry with a main campus, multi-phase men's homes, two women's homes, freedom food pantry, two coffee shops and an event center. We welcome men and women from all over the nation and serve an international clientele. We have a growing staff and over 100 volunteers. In addition, our donors and prayer warriors help us offer services at no cost and grow the Kingdom of God. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is at the center of all we do. Thanks to all who take part!
