DANBURY, CT — The City of Danbury and the Jericho Partnership are joining forces to help combat homelessness and they need your help to qualify for a $25,000 grant to fulfill their mission. The two organizations are presenting the project called “CityServe” to increase the number of participants in Project CleanStart (PCS), expand the number of students impacted by Reading Buddies Program (RBP), and increase services offered by Spring Street Neighborhood Center (SSNC), according to their website.
Jericho is a finalist to win one of 40 grants with 200 organizations in the running. Funds will be used to enable team leaders to work directly with the homeless population and present the “Reading Buddies” program to several Danbury public schools. If awarded the grant, they will be able to expand their impact in elementary schools, increase food pantry distributions, help shut-ins and the elderly population, and offering free case management for families in need.
