Breaktime (www.breaktime.org) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit working to end young adult homelessness through purposeful transitional employment and financial empowerment. We empower young adults experiencing homelessness to build sustainability in their lives while building resilience in their communities. Specifically, we recruit young adults from nonprofits partners who provide housing and case management, and after a few weeks of job training and professional development, these associates engage in purposeful, skill-building employment with site partners for three to six months. Through this early intervention, Breaktime helps prevent long-term chronic homelessness and supports young adults in becoming changemakers in their communities.
