Freedom means that an individual can be herself. She can express her thoughts and beliefs, choose freely what to do with her life and think freely about others. We all need the freedom to choose the paths of others, to build relationships with each other, to meet the challenges of our lives when we are frightened or when we feel down. By enabling us to do these things, we help make society more free.

In the dark days of slavery, people were treated as though they were a piece of property. They were given little freedom, and they could not determine their own fate. On the other hand, they could still build relationships with people that they knew as individuals. They could still think freely in many cases and also sometimes get to make choices about their future. Still, today some people are held in bondage. They are denied their personal freedoms and given no choice in how their lives will be lived. And there exist other kinds of bondage – those constructed by mental illness, substance abuse problems and other such challenges. We at Quidli want to empower workers to take comfort in knowing that if something should happen, which is beyond their control, that there is somewhere to turn for help that won’t judge them or threaten to throw them out onto the cold hard streets.
