Jericho Project serves young adults ages 18-24 experiencing homelessness, living in a shelter or on the streets. Our Young Adult Services seek to focus efforts on LGBTQ young adults, who are very vulnerable to housing insecurity. Rapid Re-Housing will rapidly re-house young adults from shelters (ideally within 90 days) by providing a variety of financial and social services.
Jericho serves low-income young adults ages 18-24 who are literally homeless, living in a shelter or on the streets. The program seeks to focus efforts on LGBTQ young adults as this population is especially vulnerable.
Jericho Project will rapidly re-house young adults from shelters (ideally within 90 days) by providing temporary financial assistance and individualized case management to ensure housing stability. A case manager will also provide referrals to community providers for legal services, healthcare, mental health/substance abuse services, recreation, and any other support to help you overcome underlying barriers to maintaining housing.
Knowledge and Employment for Young Adults (KEYA)
Jericho’s employment and education program enables young adults to identify, prepare for, and secure their dream jobs. A career counselor will help you become economically self-sufficient through educational opportunities, job readiness skills training, paid and unpaid internships, and employment placement.
On July 17, 2018, our eighth and largest supportive housing residence on Walton Avenue in the Bronx opened. 33 of its apartments are reserved for young adults ages 18-25.
To apply: have your case manager complete a “2010E Application” indicating that you are interested in “Young Adult Housing.” Your case manager will submit it to the Human Resources Administration (HRA) and those applications will be forwarded to Jericho Project.
