DayBreak was founded in 2001 by a group of young adults from McLean Bible Church who fell in love with the inner city community and wanted to make a difference in the name of Jesus Christ. Today, eleven years later, DayBreak is a Christian organization dedicated to serving the children, families and individuals on an ongoing basis in the community of Lincoln Heights, a low-income housing community consisting of approximately 2,500 individuals in northeast Washington, DC.
DayBreak’s Vision is to see children and families know Christ and glorify God with their lives.
DayBreak’s Mission is to share the gospel with under-resourced communities through nurturing children and strengthening families.
The goal of our programs is to lay a foundation in the lives of children so that they will grow up to become godly leaders in their community. All of our programs emphasize both the gospel and education. We are faithful to teach the Word of God and how to live in community with others through service and selflessness. We hope to ensure that children are getting the education they need to stay at grade level in school so that they are prepared to graduate from high school and continue on into a viable career.
