  • Mission:
  • At Breakthrough House, Inc. we believe that persons with mental illness can journey toward recovery, enabling them to lead self-directed lives of choice, responsibility, and respect. Our mission is to support them on that journey by providing services, relationships, and opportunities that empower them to function more independently in their social, living, and working environments, and to secure decent, safe, and affordable housing for them in Shawnee County.

  • History:
  • Breakthrough House, Inc. is a nonprofit community agency established in 1978 to support the recovery of individuals with mental illness by providing services, supports, and opportunities to improve the quality of their lives. A student at the University of Kansas, searching for a way to meet the internship requirement for her Masters Degree in Social Work, decided to pursue starting a support group for persons in Topeka recovering from mental illness. She discussed her idea with the director of the local Mental Health Association and with others who shared her vision, and together they initiated weekly meetings at her house. What began 30 years ago as a small network for patients and former patients from Topeka State Hospital, the Menninger Clinic, and other therapeutic settings has grown to become a full-fledged community of support.
