Breakthrough to a Better Tomorrow

With over half of Colorado’s released individuals returning to prison within three years, break the cycle and break through to a better tomorrow with initiatives that create a more diverse and forward-thinking community, reduce recidivism rates, and increase financial security for people rejoining society.

It costs the state of Colorado $46,866 to incarcerate one person for one year (CDOC, FY 2019-2020). The three year recidivism rate in Colorado is 44.9% (CDOC, 2017). It costs Breakthrough $3,100 to put one person through our in-facility programming. Our recidivism rate is 6%. For the reduction in recidivism that we have achieved, we have saved the state of Colorado and its taxpayers over $24 million.

The math is simple; your contribution is an investment in our people and your community.
