For over 30 years Breaking Free's passionate and proven approach
has been strengthening the lives of 15,000 people annually.
staff uses nationally recognized prevention and
educational programs to build the life skills people need to thrive and
decisions for themselves and their families.
Breaking Free is committed to one goal: helping individuals and families live in a community where everyone reaches their full potential.
Free cannot accomplish its goal alone. Based in Aurora, IL, we collaborate with schools, law enforcement agencies, local coalitions
and other human service organizations to help strengthen communities in the five-county area we serve.
Breaking Free was founded in
1975 by a community coalition and incorporated in Illinois in 1977 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.
Breaking Free's Run for Recovery is being canceled this year due to location construction. We tried to find an alternative location,
but unfortunately couldn't find one to hold our annual event.
We appreciate your ongoing support of our programs helping people develop
their own path of recovery. If you are interested in finding out how you can help (without putting on your running shoes!), please
