"The Freedom Tour is a beacon of hope for those who have been affected by natural disasters. We are committed to providing ongoing support to those in need, even when the news cameras have left and the rest of the world has moved on."
When Hurricane Ian hit Florida in November 2022, it left a trail of destruction that affected thousands of people. Homes were destroyed, communities were left in ruins, and families were displaced. In the aftermath of the disaster, many organizations and news stations came to provide help, but they only stayed for a few weeks before leaving. However, for The Freedom Tour, the work was just beginning.
Who We Are and What We Did for Victims
The Freedom Tour is a food and disaster relief ministry that has been providing aid to those affected by natural disasters since 2015. Our mission is to bring hope, healing, and restoration to those in need, and we are committed to staying in affected communities for the long haul.
After Hurricane Ian, we collected semi loads full of dry goods, generators, cleaning supplies like paper towels and toilet paper, furniture, water, and more. Our efforts were not limited to the immediate aftermath of the hurricane. We have continued to provide ongoing support to those who have been affected by the disaster.
Our Current Impact in Numbers
Our Commitment to Relief
Unlike other organizations that provide temporary relief, we remain committed to the people of the affected communities. We know that the devastation caused by a natural disaster is long-lasting and that people's needs do not disappear after a few weeks.
We have partnered with other ministries that have stayed in the area to help Hurricane Ian victims who are still living in motels and hotels, displaced from their homes because they can't rebuild.
The Small Things Matter
The impact of our work has been profound. We have provided not only physical resources but also emotional and spiritual support to those affected by Hurricane Ian. The simple act of a listening ear, a hug, or food can make all the difference to someone who has lost everything.

The dedication and commitment of The Freedom Tour have not gone unnoticed. We have been featured in many news stations and have received recognition from various organizations for our work. But for us, the real reward is knowing that we have made a difference in the lives of those who have been affected.
