Through partnerships at home and abroad, we seek to mobilize communities to serve those who have been displaced from their homelands by sustaining movements that embrace refugees and provide a sense of dignity, community, belonging, love, and hope.
Our network offers volunteers, church groups, and mission teams the opportunity to be the welcoming arms of Christ for refugees and migrants in places of resettlement.
Among so many other needs, one of the greatest needs for refugee children is the need for recreation and play. It’s essential to find opportunities for children to simply be children. Breakaway initiatives have a strategic focus on providing ministries that restore a sense of childhood for refugee youth/children (about half the world’s refugees are children). We facilitate youth camps (sports, recreation, arts, etc.), special birthday and holiday celebrations, and other life-giving activities for migrant and displaced people groups.
Feel free to contact us if you are interested in getting involved with a refugee outreach in your community or going on a mission trip to serve refugee children.
“Continue to love each other like brothers and sisters, and remember always to welcome strangers, for by doing this, some people have entertained angels without knowing it.” – Hebrews 13:1-2
