Freedom 22 is the private family foundation of Charlie and Barb Asher. It has a 25-year history of addressing an array of targeted needs in the fields of criminal justice, children's needs in family law, and K-8 education.
Several of Freedom 22's projects are innovative ones requiring extensive development by volunteers and team members from fields as diverse as law, psychology, counseling, medicine, law enforcement, education, and economics. All of Freedom 22’s projects and services are free.
The foundation has six active projects currently.
UpToParents.org, a free bilingual tool already used by over a quarter million separated, divorced, and never-married parents to build their better futures by focusing on meeting their children’s needs. For more, see . . . .
Earning Another Look, an initiative to give indigent Indiana inmates with excellent institutional records the opportunity to have their sentences reviewed and to be assisted upon release with a comprehensive reentry plan. For more, see . . . .
Each of these projects has had several labor-intensive stages. Joining many other volunteers, the charity’s founders have dedicated their efforts without charge to these initiatives (Charlie from his background in criminal defense law and Barb from her background in therapeutic social work).
