How We Make A Difference
About Us
Breaking Free is committed to one goal: helping individuals and families live in a community where everyone reaches their full potential.

Breaking 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.

Celebrating St. Patrick's Day Responsibly
On March 17th everyone becomes Irish!

Yes, St. Patrick's Day will soon be upon us and the green beer will be flowing! Although we all love the "wearing of the green", it is also a time to be careful that our revelry doesn't turn into tragedy.

St. Patrick's Day has become associated with heaving drinking -- the latest statistics available reveal that 276 people were killed by drunk driving related car accidents from 2009-2013 on St. Patrick's Day.

So have a good time, but plan ahead to ensure that you drink responsibly if alcohol is part of your celebration. Click below for some suggestions for keeping your drinking in check.
