Security Deposit Return Policy
FreedomWorks will return the $400 Security Deposit only when you meet the following criteria:
1. Participate at FreedomWorks a minimum of 6 months.
2. Provide a written 30-day notice to leave FreedomWorks on or before the first day of a month prior to moving out.
(i.e.: notice on or before April 1 to leave on May 1) The full financial obligation must accompany the notice. Proper
notice and the final month’s payment must be made on time.
3. Be financially responsible for any damages that you caused to the building or property beyond normal wear and tear.
4. Clean out the entire living unit, including closets, carpet and window treatments, bathroom and kitchen, including
refrigerator and stove, must be cleaned, in cooperation with your apartment mates.
5. Pay all late charges or delinquent financial obligations in full.
6. Properly dispose of any debris, rubbish and discards that you do not take with you.
7. Return all keys. There is a $25.00 fee for each non-returned key.
8. Provide a forwarding address for FreedomWorks to mail the full/partial security deposit to you within two weeks.
60% Payment Policy
We understand that most men will come to FreedomWorks without much money or income. Because of this, we will
allow you to pay 60% of what you have when you come in and 60% of any money you take in during the following
month. This money will be put on hold in your name. You will be expected to provide copies of your check stubs.
In the meantime, we will keep track of what you owe to FreedomWorks. When you arrive, your account will be
charged $400 for a Security Deposit and a portion of the $400 monthly obligation based on the number of days in your
first month. The account will also be charged the $400 obligation each month following.
Once you have employment, you can apply for Emergency Assistant from Hennepin County. This process will take some
time. Any money that comes through this (which could be up to $800) will be credited to your account.
After Emergency Assistance has been granted/denied, the money you have put on hold goes towards the amount you
still owe on your account; any excess amount left on hold will be returned to you.
Late Payment Policy
If you are unable to pay your monthly financial obligation on time, there is a late fee of $5 per day charged to your
account until the total amount due is paid in full. It is possible to avoid paying the late fee by presenting a thoughtful
and thoroughly written Late Payment Plan (LPP). The LPP must be submitted 2 days prior to when your payment is due.
Submitting a LPP does not guarantee approval and if approved it is valid for only one month.
Requirements of the Late Payment Plan:
-Drafted by you and submitted to the Administrative Coordinator.
-Describe the reason(s) that your financial obligation will be late, and explain the circumstances surrounding the
default that are out of your control (lay-off, a large unexpected expense, etc.).
-Create a timeline showing how and when you will bring your account up to date.
-Include copies of your check stubs and any other relevant documentation to support your situation (child support
payments, car insurance bill, phone bill, etc.)
-Develop a feasible budget and provide a copy.
