Founded in 1988, the Joint Urban Ministry Project (JUMP) addresses the growing epidemic of poverty. To date, support for JUMP has grown to include broad interfaith support from 27 area faith communities, key funding from hundreds of individuals, and vital sponsorship and dollars from both businesses and foundations. Unwavering, JUMP operates a key downtown Drop-In center in donated space at the First Congregational Church of Burlington where staff and volunteers provide compassionate care, practical assistance and informed referrals to thousands of Vermont children and adults. Eligible families and individuals receive voucher assistance for transportation, food, laundry, utilities, household goods, and healthcare every three months.
