Who We Are


The Breaking Free Foundation is a non-stock, non-profit, and non-government organization registered with the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission on May 6, 2022. 

A committed team of individuals, driven by passion and dedication, came together to form the Foundation’s inaugural Board of Trustees. Working together, they swiftly developed a comprehensive plan of action to achieve the organization’s goals.

The Foundation hopes to provide shelter and support, including access to spiritual, psychological, and emotional care, as well as legal assistance if necessary on their way toward total inner healing.

One of the notable components of our initiative is our emphasis on empowerment through education and skills training, leading to increased chances of securing employment opportunities
