The Spirit of Freedom Foundation was founded on January 15, 2001 to improve American understanding of their heritage and the economic opportunities unique to our free enterprise economic system.
When freedom was attacked on September 11, 2001, America was energized to fight threats to personal freedom. Patriotism bubbled to the surface that day, but has since cooled ... again. This made us more dedicated to advocating for civic responsibility. A major responsibility of a civilized society is to provide comfort and care for those who fought for freedom.
Because the common thread of unrest in any society is the despair felt when people have abandoned hope of comfort or success, We believe the road to happiness leads to the American Free Enterprise Economic System which can eliminate poverty throughout the world.
The Spirit of Freedom Foundation is therefore dedicated to preserving the rights and freedoms found in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights for all Ameican citizens and to extend our blessing the world over.
Definition of Core values: The enduring beliefs which an institution—and the people who inhabit it — hold in common and endeavor to put into action.
We believe life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is rooted in the individual citizen as the primary building block in a free and prosperous society. For over two centuries, America has proven that economic well-being and wealth creation flourishes with individual freedom.
We believe that freedom is best enjoyed when we respect the rights of others and all other living things.
We believe in extending the American political and economic system to fight the problem of world-wide poverty and civil unrest. The common thread of unrest in the world is the despair felt when people have abandoned hope of comfort or success.
We further advocate and believe in causes that improve the human living condition. These words from the Declaration of Independence is our mantra: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
Our core values are best expressed by the Philosophy of Individualism: Individualism regards man—every man—as an independent, sovereign entity who possesses an inalienable right to his own life, a right derived from his nature as a rational being. Individualism holds that a civilized society, or any form of association, cooperation or peaceful coexistence among men, can be achieved only on the basis of the recognition of individual rights—and that a group, as such, has no rights other than the individual rights of its members.
Our Mission is to enable homeless and disabled veterans find comfort and success.
Our mission is to advocate for any issue that will improve freedom in the United States both socially and economically and to extend the blessings of Individual Rights and Freedoms and The Free Enterprise System -- worldwide.
Several circumstances led us to focus on the lives of veterans. We find hopelessness and homelessness amongst those retired, disabled and damaged men and women who served their homeland to fight for the freedom of others only to return mentally and physically scarred.
We focus on specific goals that will alleviate and hopefully eliminate the disgraceful treatment of homeless veterans.
Individual comfort and success is best achieved through individual freedom.
Elimination of poverty and homelessness among those who honorably served our country is the right and proper thing to do.
Initially, we are in the process of connecting the dots involving real estate, education and jobs.
We own a property with apartments which we are making available to veterans. We are seeking more donated properties which are already liveable or which can be rehabbed for use by veterans.
For those veterans capable of running a home-based business, we can provide at home training, counseling and mentorship.
In support of our Foundation Mission, we will work to apply for the many available grants as well as crowd funding.
We would like to re-establish a national Motor Coach tour to promote our Mission and Vision. Our plan is to visit major events throughout the country such as athletic events, fairs, schools, parades and all places where people gather.
Success in this day and age means advertising. According to studies, a traveling Motor Coach will provide some 750,000 advertising 'impressions' per month. Its visibility at events throughout the country will serve the cause well ... and a motor coach is extremely inexpensive relative to the alternatives!
In this way, we expect to raise operating funds, enlist volunteers and sponsors and encounter those who are willing to donate homes for the homeless.
