FreeLee Life Services for Individuals & Families, Inc. was formed March 17, 2016 when founder Keonna Freeman was motivated to give back, by improving communities throughout her native state of DE.
From my own personal experiences as a black woman, a once single mother, and a woman of the LGBTQI+ community, remaining focused while overcoming stereotypes and microaggressions, required me to work harder. There was criticism in the past when I became a teenage mother and when I "came out" that sometimes became discouraging. However, I remained steadfast. I never lost sight of love and light. FreeLee Life Services was formed to help others with shared experiences. So, they don’t feel captive while trying to reach goals or simply live life. They should be able to do so freely. My desire is for individuals and families, throughout Delaware communities, to learn without limits, live worry free, love free of judgement, and laugh, because it’s good for the soul. [Freely] in the organization’s name was revised to “FreeLee,” to reflect my heritage (Freeman & Lee bloodline).
