"Serving essential needs one step at a time"




SAVE The DATE "Virtual Run For JUMP 9/24/22 thru 10/8/2022"

Rising food, energy and housing costs following two plus years of COVID realities - have impacted everyone, but none more than our low-income neighbors.  Hear these words from people that JUMP has helped in 2022: 

-          “Thank you so much for making a payment on my power bill. I appreciate JUMP very much for what your organization does in supporting me in hard times.” - Kate    

-          I was evicted from my apartment and am living in my car. I hope to be back housed again soon. Thank you JUMP for helping me.” Rebecca

 Low-income Vermont households need the help that JUMP has a 30 plus year history of providing. JUMP services include: assistance with utility payments, transportation and essentials like groceries, toiletries, clothing and cleaning supplies. JUMP needs your support of this vital mission.
