BREAK THE CYCLE USA
Break The Cycle USA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to eradicating commercial sexual exploitation, human trafficking, domestic abuse, and poverty in the United States. Utilizing the media and technology as a vehicle for change, we strive to heighten awareness and educate our community on crucial social issues. Our mission is to break the cycle through education, technology, legislation, advocacy, and community outreach while partnering and assisting other organizations and shelters that are serving these communities, children, and families in crisis on a daily basis.
We support nonprofits and organizations that understand the dynamics on transforming communities, families, individuals, and youth that have been affected by dangerous and unpredictable surroundings. Via select effective partnerships, shared information, and pooled resources we are able to increase agency impact and ensure sustainability. These environments have caused limited resources that perpetuate a cycle of violence, commercial sexual exploitation, abuse, poverty; in addition to, lack of education, stability and emotional intelligence.
Break The Cycle USA partners with community impact partners such as schools, churches, conscious companies, and other nonprofits to provide: clothing, funds, food, classes, programs, beauty/care packages, and other specific needs specifically tailored to each shelter and community partner. We work with local police and federal agencies to make an impact and are focusing on legislation change. Without proper laws and regulations in the U.S. justices cannot be served to protect the innocence. We are breaking the cycle.
