A Holistic Approach to a Healthier Future
At Jericho, people are encouraged to envision a healthier future for themselves and their families and are empowered to take the necessary steps to achieve it. Our programs touch the cornerstones of a person’s life — housing, employment, wellness and family stability. This holistic approach to helping people enables individuals to access extensive, results-based programs at their level of need — whether they are coming to us from a shelter, or are one paycheck away from homelessness.
A More Cost-Effective Society
Through our work, Jericho contributes to a healthier, more cost effective society. We provide all of our life changing services for an annual rate of only $15,000 per adult client, compared to $36,000 for a cot in a New York City shelter, $70,000 for a room in a family shelter and $118,000 for a New York City jail cell.
