the cycle of homelessness

We are a community of action-driven optimists committed to ending youth homelessness. By offering transitional employment opportunities, we are able to nurture the talent and launch the careers of young adults experiencing homelessness. 

More Than Just An Employer

I don’t know where I’d be today without Breaktime…
It’s not just a job, it’s an actual career propellant that launches you forward to wherever you want to go.

Doubling Our Impact

In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Breaktime has launched our Double Impact Initiative: serving hundreds of nutritious meals each day to frontline healthcare, shelter workers, and food-insecure populations in Greater Boston, manufacturing sturdy, cloth face-masks, and offering professional cleaning services to businesses as they reopen, all while creating paid job opportunities for young adults experiencing homelessness. 

A Cafe With A Mission

We're opening up a cafe right in Downtown Boston that we can't wait for you to enjoy.

Together We Can Break the Cycle

We cannot express enough the gratitude that we have for our corporate and individual donors and supporters who have helped Breaktime get to the place it is today. Without the generosity that has been demonstrated so far, the impact that we have been able to make so far would not have been possible.
