About Jeremiah Program

Jeremiah Program (JP) offers one of the nation’s most successful strategies for disrupting poverty, two generations at a time. At JP, we believe that no mother should have to make the untenable choice between investing in herself or supporting her children. JP’s holistic approach encourages families to bring all of their identities to bear in achieving their goals.

Founded in 1993, JP is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, with campuses in six cities nationwide. As demand for the JP model increases, we are expanding in new cities with both residential and non-residential models.



Jeremiah Program was founded in 1993 by Michael J. O Connell, in partnership with city and community leaders in Minneapolis, MN. The first JP campus opened in 1998, and was expanded in 2001. The expansion continued in 2007 with the opening of the St. Paul campus. JP Austin began serving families in 2013, and opened their campus in 2017. That same year, Fargo-Moorhead broke ground on their campus, opening in 20xx, and in 20xx, JP opened the Rochester campus, serving Rochester and Southeast Minnesota. In 2020, JP began a new phase of expansion, opening non-residential campuses in Boston, MA and Brooklyn, NY.
