About Us

Breakaway Outreach is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1995.

With a vision of helping kids “breakaway” from a troubled past, founders Jimmy and Cindy Larche began the organization primarily as an outreach to at-risk teens in South Florida juvenile detention centers. Over the years, and standing on the shoulders of many others (including departed loved ones), this movement has grown into an international missions network impacting youth and children through local, regional, and global partnerships. From the margins of Chattanooga to the ends of the earth, we aim to empower kids through communities of faith, hope, and love.

What do our programs look like? That’s like asking what the weather or landscape is like in South Florida, East Tennessee, Europe, or Africa. It all depends on where you are. Through a wide range of services and programs, we aim to create opportunities for some of the most vulnerable and marginalized young people in our communities—reducing social isolation, shaping resilience, and reimagining better futures. Our outreach partnerships serve youth, children, and families in areas that are relevant to their particular needs and life circumstances. Yet most areas of ministry will fall into one of three operational categories: youth empowerment ministries, compassion/justice efforts, and global missions.

Breakaway Outreach is under the oversight of a board of directors and benefits from an international council of advisors. If you would like more information about our staff, regional coordinators, global missions initiatives, or any specific area of ministry, please contact our office.
