Mission Statement

Our mission is to aid individuals and families struggling with their mental health, with substance use, co-occurring disorders, eating disorders, and finding viable, quality treatment to find a path to and through recovery through education, support, harm reduction, and advocacy.

Description

The Break Free Foundation began as an idea for there to be a way for individuals struggling with their mental health and with substance use to be able to apply for financial aid to cover their treatment where insurance falls short. On February 14th, 2022, we held our first fundraiser in partnership with the 501(c)(3) organization 10,000 Beds to raise funds for their scholarship fund to send individuals to a rehabilitation center at no cost to them. We were able to award ten scholarships from this initial showcase and went on to hold our second showcase on September 10th, World Suicide Prevention Day during Recovery Month.

We established a new memorial scholarship fund in partnership with 10,000 Beds in memory of Sergeant Tyler who lost his battle with depression in March of 2022. This scholarship fund will go towards helping veterans and active service members find help for their substance use before they make an irreversible decision. This year's scholarship fund will go to two individuals.
