Breaktime unites communities to nurture talent and launch the careers of young adults experiencing homelessness.

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.

Our Mission

Breaktime is a 501(c)(3) non-profit working to end young adult homelessness. We operate Boston’s first transitional employment program for young adults experiencing homelessness in which young adults launch their careers, nurture their talents, and serve their communities. Through this early intervention that focuses on financial and personal empowerment, Breaktime helps prevent long-term chronic homelessness and supports young adults in becoming changemakers.

Our Work

The Breaktime Double Impact Initiative

In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Breaktime has launched an initiative with a double impact. We are creating empowering, paid job opportunities for young adults experiencing homelessness who work to prepare and deliver thousands of meals and tens of thousands of pounds of groceries to families in need across Greater Boston.
