Breakthrough Urban Ministries

Volunteers and guests receiving services at Breakthrough with Arloa Sutter and Kimi Ottaviano (in the green patterned shirts) in the recently renovated Women’s Lounge.

Many thanks to Kimi Ottaviano for taking me to learn about Breakthrough and spend time with Breakthrough’s inspiring Founder, Arloa Sutter, whose big heart and determination to help as much as possible has grown programs with measurable success for youth within a 64 block radius of their buildings.

Thanks also to the North Shore groups which helped renovate the Lounge and Library in the Women’s and Youth Shelter Buildings and to Toms Price for donating furniture. Thanks also to the Chicago Bulls for the exercise room!

  1. The Breakthrough Ladies Lounge provides the comforting feeling of a home to ladies who don’t have a place to call their own.
