Denver Inner City Parish is a community-based non-profit transforming the lives of vulnerable children and adults in the Denver metro area through programs that interrupt violence, disrupt poverty, and empower socio-economic change.
Founded in 1960, the Denver Inner City Parish continues the legacy of religious charity. During the 1950's churches in Denver began following their congregations to the suburbs, the "flight" of these churches created a gap in resources for those in need. Churches that had historically provided human services for communities were now gone. Leaving many to fend for themselves in this significant gap. In response a coalition of churches formed a network of nonprofit inner city parishes across the country.
The word parish means "community" and the DICP is committed to community we are a non-sectarian human services nonprofit. The Parish elevates community through its community programs.
The Denver Inner City Parish empowers communities, supports personal transformations, and creates self-sustaining lifestyles for those who are most vulnerable. DICP shines as a powerful example of what community with adequate support can achieve.
"This place has been a staple in the community for a long time! From the food bank to the programs they offer, this place continues to be one of the best!"
