Jesus was once asked, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” He replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” – Matthew 22:37-39

Born out of a deep love for God, Jericho Partnership exists to share the love of Christ by serving our neighbors in urban Danbury – the under-served, the disadvantaged, the struggling, the poor, the homeless, the needy … the most vulnerable.

The eight Ministry Partners that operate under the Jericho umbrella serve:

  • Disadvantaged students, at risk of dropping out of school
  • Children without health insurance
  • Youth and adults navigating their worldview and faith
  • Teen-aged and young moms
  • Women and/or couples facing unplanned or crisis pregnancies
  • Men battling drug or alcohol addictions
  • Homeless men and women 
  • Families from the city’s poorest neighborhood who don't speak English or can’t afford an adequate supply of food or clothing
  • Families and victims of domestic violence who need transitional housing
  • Couples seeking adoption services

We do this through a radical and sustainable partnership of Christ-centered churches, word-and-need ministries, and the generosity of our supporters.

Our services include:

  • Mentoring (boys, girls, teen parents, men in recovery)
  • Counseling to kids and adults (case management, formal and informal sessions)
  • Education (Academy Middle School, after-school and summer programs, tutors, private and public school Reading Buddy programs)
  • Low-cost pediatric care to the uninsured
  • Job-training for the homeless
  • Shelter and meals for the homeless community
  • Food & clothing for inner-city low-income families
  • Transitional housing for recovering addicts, homeless families, women & children
