Founder

Arloa Sutter
(ar-LO-ah, s-UH-ter)

Dr. Arloa Sutter began Breakthrough in an unused church meeting room to serve coffee and lunch to those experiencing homelessness. By listening to the needs of the community, Arloa’s vision became clear. Over 25 years later, Breakthrough stands as a center of hope for community residents and families on Chicago’s West Side.
