Jericho Partnership is a nonprofit collaboration of word and deed ministry organizations and congregations dedicated to serving the at-risk community of Danbury, CT, focusing on issues related to life and health, our youth, our homeless and needy, and neighborhood transformation.
Taking our name from the Biblical parable of the Good Samaritan, who aided a beaten and bruised traveler on the ancient road to Jericho, we aim to fulfill the Bible’s twin directives of proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ and of doing good deeds to demonstrate His love – benefiting our community by helping those in need of spiritual, emotional and material transformation.
