Denton Freedom House in Texas is celebrating 20 years of ministry helping recovering addicts find freedom through residential recovery and discipleship programs that include training in practical life skills. The ministry started with a men’s house, but has grown to add a house for women. It also operates a coffee shop and food pantry. Denton Freedom House has 3 stars and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 94.

The Anglican Church of Uganda in 2016 launched a food security and environmental conservation project for Ugandans ravaged by a 30-year war that left most of the country in poverty. The church provided specialized training in conservation farming techniques and sustainable methods to enrich the soil.

Decades of conflict have caused a crisis of internally displaced persons in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where some 6.2 million people have been forced to flee their homes. Missionaries with Mission Aviation Fellowship, Ben and Anna Samuelson, fly men, women and families safely across the country for work and other purposes, avoiding active militia. Mission Aviation Fellowship has 1 star and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 80.

Builders International, a ministry of the Assemblies of God, raised half a million dollars last spring, according to AG News, to help repair Ukrainian church buildings damaged in the country’s war with Russia. The money is being used to pay Ukrainian construction teams, but the ministry hopes to fly teams out to help with repairs once travel restrictions ease.
