Breaking the cycle of Young Adult Homelessness.

Organization Overview

Breaktime ( is a 501(c)(3) non-profit working to break the cycle of young adult homelessness. We believe that it is time to break down barriers, break apart stigmas, and break into systems that hold back young adults experiencing housing insecurity. Through transitional employment and financial empowerment, Breaktime works to ensure job security, financial security, and ultimately housing security for these young people.

Breaktime prides itself on our supportive, flexible, and rewarding work environment. We offer valuable benefits such as unlimited paid-time off, 401k matching, health & dental insurance, and flexible hybrid work. We additionally offer a variety of professional development opportunities for our staff including meetings with influential members of the nonprofit world.  Breaktime is rapidly expanding as an organization (going from two full-time employees at the start of 2020 and 13 going into 2022), and we believe that there are a significant amount of opportunities for advancement.

At Breaktime, we have three key values that guide us in our work daily:

Young Adults First: Elevating young adults experiencing housing insecurity’s voices is a core guiding principle behind Breaktime’s work, and we do everything we can do to support them.
Radical Inclusion: To us, radical inclusion is about creating an equitable and welcoming space, particularly for those who are typically not included at the table. This permeates into how we make decisions at Breaktime, and we are grateful for the diverse perspectives that allow us to do so.
Collaborative Innovation: We refrain from ‘reinventing the wheel’ and, instead, proactively build strong partnerships with other key stakeholders to more efficiently end young adult homelessness.
Breaktime has been recognized by Social Venture Partners, Forbes 30 Under 30, AIM Next Century Award, and Social Innovation Forum. Breaktime’s work has also been featured in Forbes, Boston Globe, NBC, Boston25 News, and more. Breaktime is backed by the City of Boston, Liberty Mutual Foundation, Harvard University, MassMutual, Blackrock, the Boston Foundation, and more.
