[Originally published in Queens Ledger] Jericho Project opened its first Queens-based Veterans Resource Center in Ozone Park last Friday. The 35-year-old nonprofit organization’s original mission was to fight homelessness. In 2006, the group started the Veterans Initiative, which now serves 750 veterans annually.

Jericho Project was honored to be recognized by at New York Housing Conference’s 44th Annual Award Gala as 2017 Nonprofit of the Year. Check out this video featuring our accomplishments!
