Breakaway Outreach is a faith-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Breakaway Outreach was founded by Jimmy and Cindy Larche. In 1987, Jimmy encountered the life-changing hope of the Gospel in a Florida juvenile detention center when he was 16-years old. He experienced new life as a result of intentional mentoring relationships. After rebounding from a childhood of abandonment and abuse, he dedicated his life to helping youth in crisis find a way out of their waywardness and hopelessness.
In 1996, Breakaway Outreach began as a small Bible study in a south Florida juvenile detention center. Now based out of Chattanooga, Tennessee, the organization pilots the National Network of Juvenile Justice Ministries and is the catalyst for the E3 Urban Leadership Initiative, a commission to train, equip, and mobilize the next generation of urban youth leaders, multiplying gospel-centered movements in communities around the globe.
Some of our outreach efforts include:
- Serving low-income neighborhoods
- Feeding inner-city children
- After school and mentoring programs
- Summer camps for disadvantaged youth
