Local and Regional
Alberni Mission Outreach
This initiative distributes resources to those still far away in Port Alberni, locked into the destructive addictive lifestyle. Every Wednesday we go to the worst areas to build bridges and bring some comfort and dignity to those on the fringes of our community.
NeighbourLink Read & Feed Program
Jericho Road is pleased to support the Read and Feed Program, which currently serves children in 4 of the local elementary schools. With the help of a dedicated group of volunteers, the Read and Feed program provides the students with a simple, yet nourishing, breakfast as well as opportunities to grow their reading skills. Each morning, our volunteers are given the opportunity to pray for the teachers, students as well as their families. Volunteers also read to the students as they enjoy their breakfast.
We are pleased to offer space for Young Life Port Alberni to host their club nights for Middle School and High School students.

Jericho Road Youth Project – Mbarara, Uganda
The Jericho Road Youth Project is based in the poorest section of Mbarara, Uganda. It provides a first step up for young boys who for one reason or another have resorted to living on the streets of Kampala or Mbarara as their only hope.
The Jericho Road Youth Project emerged from the vision and passion of Pat Kokura, a retired teacher from Port Alberni and a member of our Jericho Road Port Alberni community.
