Our Goals

Community Support – providing services and resource and benefit navigation support for people of all ages.

Denver Inner City Parish (DICP) was established in 1960 in response to the growing number of impoverished families living in Denver’s West Side neighborhood who were unable to meet their basic living needs. Since that time, DICP has stayed true to our mission of providing programs and services for lower-income families, and we have expanded our programs to include the entire Denver metro area. DICP focuses on areas of critical need in the community, specifically education and youth development, hunger relief, health and wellness, and community support. DICP serves Denver’s at-risk communities through programs that relieve suffering, promote self-sufficiency, enrich lives, and address obstacles associated with poverty.
