Colorado Gives Day

One person at a time this Colorado Gives Day.

A domino effect refers to a chain reaction of positive events or outcomes that are set in motion by an initial action or event. It’s a symbolic way of describing how one positive action can lead to another, creating a cascade of beneficial effects. This concept often illustrates how small, constructive changes can have far-reaching and compounding impacts.

Every participant at Breakthrough is connected to people beyond themselves. We show them that they don’t have to be defined by their past, and that they have the power and ability to change not only their world but others around them as well. This not only breaks the cycle of intergenerational poverty and incarceration but can also shift the culture inside prison facilities to be one of acceptance and change.

Did you know: Children of incarcerated parents are six times more likely to end up incarcerated themselves?

This Colorado Gives Day, help us continue to keep the dominos falling forward: impacting the lives of our participants and their families, friends, neighbors, and how our society defines criminal justice.

Meet MJ – one of our recent graduates at Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility

Join us as we keep the dominos falling forward.

Through compassion, connection, and community, we rebuild people’s lives and ultimately help them reintegrate into society—all while challenging outdated perceptions to reform how our country defines criminal justice.

The graduates of our program fight, every day, to move forward, to shrug off the weight of societal stigma that prevents them from getting jobs and accessing essential resources. They have to fight to be seen as who they truly are, to purse economic freedom for their families, and to truly have a sense of belonging.

Will you help get the dominos moving?

Your contribution will help us break intergenerational cycles of incarceration and ensure the communities welcoming our people home feel the effects of positive change. Donate below!
