About Jeremiah Program

Jeremiah Program (JP) offers one of the nation’s most successful strategies for ending the cycle of poverty for single mothers and their children, two generations at a time. Two-generation – or 2Gen — programs uniquely focus on the whole family and achieve long-term, sustainable results. The approach has been proven to achieve significant educational, health, and economic benefits for parents, children, and communities.

Jeremiah Program is expanding throughout the country to meet the growing demand for its model. The organization has campuses in Minneapolis, MN, St. Paul, MN, Rochester-SE, MN, Austin, TX, and Fargo, ND.

In Boston, MA and Brooklyn, NY, Jeremiah has introduced an innovative non-residential model, working with leading organizations to serve mothers and children. Learn more at  Jeremiah Program.

Jeremiah Program was born from Minneapolis community leaders’ compassionate concern for the barriers facing the growing number of low-income single mothers in their community. Partnering with single mothers attending local community colleges, they identified safe and affordable housing, as well as education for both mom and child, as the most important tools for ending intergenerational poverty. Our downtown Minneapolis campus was built in 1998, followed by our St. Paul campus in 2007. With a 21-year history of inspiring post-secondary graduation rates and living-wage employment for single moms and brighter futures for their children, JP continues to play a critical role in disrupting the impacts of poverty in all communities where we operate, bolstering equity so all families can build well-being and achieve economic prosperity.
