This year, we hope you'll consider adopting a Breaking Free family to give gifts this holiday season to the women we serve and their families.

Whether you're celebrating a blessed year by paying it forward, trying to rally your faith community around a cause that really matters, or teaching your children about true generosity, Adopt-a-Family is a great opportunity to make a difference right in your backyard.

E-mail Aliyah Carter at acarter@breakingfree.net to Adopt-a-Family today!

What's New

Watch Vednita Cater's TED talk below!

Vednita Carter, Founder and President of Breaking Free, shares a powerful message in this TED talk presented at TEDxMinneapolis in July 2015. Carter begins by telling her own story of survival as a high school graduate trafficked in a strip club in Minneapolis. She explains how she got out of the Life and went on to found Breaking Free in October 1996 as a place for women to find safety and refuge. "No woman, no girl, no one deserves to be bought and sold," she declares in her talk. "This is no one's destiny-no one's."
