Can you start a sentence off with the word because?

depends, if it's like this one:
Because she broke her leg, she was not able to run the race.
If it's like the one above then yes you can. Does that help?!?

Yes, you can start a sentence with because as long as the sentence also has an independent clause.
Because of the rain, we postponed the picnic.
Because her boyfriend was coming to dinner, Dana prepared his favorite foods.
