Resources: Charities and non-profits

Mission Statement: To provide survivors of traumatic life events with the treatment and support needed to reclaim their lives.

BFF Goals: We want to be a trusted online hub that connects the community to resources and support for those who have experienced trauma, and those who want to learn more.

Our second goal with BFF is to make trauma healing accessible to everyone, regardless of economic status. Healing is possible, and the tools and resources to help should be available to everyone.

We want to pave the road for trauma healing and create valuable conversations about mental health, trauma and abuse. Removing the stigma, starting the healing, one day at a time.

The Breaking Free Foundation is a non-profit organization, and the brain child of seven like-minded people who came together with a common goal to make an impact in the trauma community. We initially came together as a supportive group following the success of the first Victor Walk, which was an initiative created by Theo Fleury back in 2013.
