At BreakWay, our support group programs are designed to help families overcome the waves that crash through life’s journeys. Finding support
is the first step in discovering a redemptive perspective about life’s experiences. Our program provides program coordinators and group facilitators with the essential tools needed to equip participants in embracing the journey to recovery. BreakWay currently offers two programs that are designed to equip churches and counseling centers with the materials needed to start a support group for children ages 5-18.

At BreakWay, our goal is to serve the emotional needs of families and children on a national level, which is why we recruit churches and counseling centers all over the United States to host BreakWay in their communities. Learn more about each of our programs by clicking the icon below.
