Freeborn Consulting's overarching mission is to help people with personal challenges live full and successful lives. Physical, mental or environmental challenges can keep people isolated and can have a detrimental impact on their employment prospects and overall quality of life.
Our vision is to deliver a specialized approach in facilitating programs that supports independence and competence, giving participants the skills, the confidence and the opportunity to participate fully in the community.
Freeborn Consulting's inaugural program is:
Transition through Theatre - from isolation to community and employment
Theatre At Work is a unique and specialized life-skills program, customized for people who have barriers to employment and are otherwise isolated within the community. It is designed to engage participants emotionally and meaningfully.
Research shows that theatre is an exceptional vehicle for learning as it enhances physical and perceptual abilities, problem solving, communication and concentration; and by engaging participants emotionally, it provides a deeper and more substantial learning experience.

Following a three-month comprehensive public consultation, a shared commitment was sealed between government, businesses, and communities to make our province a place where people with disabilities fully integrate with their communities and live full and successful lives.
The Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation has committed to investing time, energy and money toward this goal.
Included in this report is that "partners" will be the key to moving the plan forward. Government is committed to ongoing engagement with the disability community, individuals, friends, family, local government, and the business community.
