FREED’s Mission is to eliminate barriers to full equality for people with disabilities through programs which promote independent living and effect systems change, while honoring dignity and self determination. FREED is a gateway to expanded choices and options at any age. We have a number of programs centering around issues that arise with aging and disabilities. We work with you and your family to figure out what you need, know your choices and get connected.
FREED provides services to residents of a five county area comprised of Nevada, Sierra, Yuba, Sutter and Colusa Counties.
