Housing and Programs Designed for Veterans
Our Veterans Initiative provides nearly 700 veterans with homes and the support they need to heal from the wounds of war and reclaim their civilian lives with dignity and hope.
This initiative is comprised of housing, employment and supportive services for veterans. We have three veteran-dedicated supportive housing residences, and a veteran supportive apartment program that provides housing placement throughout New York City.
Jericho’s Workforce Opportunities Program (WfO) provides a full range of employment and vocational services to homeless and low-income New York City veterans. Each year, Jericho places over 100 veterans in jobs with an average hourly salary of $13.52 per hour. The Jericho Veteran Employment Program (JVEP) helps veterans without a secure income to gain employment prior to becoming homeless.
Jericho’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has enabled Jericho to help 225 low-income veterans and their families with assistance to either prevent imminent homelessness or to rapidly re-house veterans who have recently become homeless by helping them identify employment as quickly as possible.
If you are a veteran and need help with homelessness prevention, housing, employment, or other supportive services, please fill out the form below to find out if you are eligible for our services.
Housing Stabilization. As a member of the NYC Aftercare Working Group, Jericho Project has partnered with city agencies and local nonprofits to develop aftercare tools and resources to ensure that once a veteran gets housed they remain stably housed.
