Letter from the Founder

Every year, as we reflect on the last twelve months, Breaking Free seems to accomplish a little more than we did the previous year in our work to end the sexual exploitation of women. Although we may not be able to end sexual exploitation during our lifetime, it is our continued hope that drives us to do the work that we do so that our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will never experience the horrors of being sex trafficked during their lifetime.

We can hardly believe it has been 19 years since our doors opened in 1996. We continue to be blessed by the generosity of our loyal supporters and funders throughout the local community and nation. We cannot do the work that we do without all of you.

Thank you for your prayers, time, donations, and financial support, all of which are vital to the sustainability of our programs. While we have made great progress, we realize there is still a great deal of work to be done. It is with you that we stand up against this injustice and collectively give voice to the millions of lost and voiceless victims still waiting to be rescued from their oppressors.

It is my hope that you will join us in this fight and continue to let the survivors of this horrific crime know that they are worth saving and to tell the world that no one deserves to be bought, sold or traded at any price.
