Break the Pipeline Partners with the University of Texas Austin Basketball Team

"

Break the Pipeline (www.breakthepipeline.org) supports children at risk of becoming involved in the criminal justice system through prevention, intervention and advocacy programs. Though programming centers on youth, Break the Pipeline also provides family and community programming to support the whole child. In the United States, approximately two million children are impacted by the criminal justice system. In the state of Texas, 12 million people are in prison, jailed, on probation or parole. Break the Pipeline is currently developing a new program in partnership with the Travis County District Attorney's office that will focus on restorative practices for youth at risk of entering the criminal justice system. Support from the charity exhibition game will allow Break the Pipeline to expand services to support more youth throughout Travis County while providing meaningful services that disrupt the incarceration cycle."
