Virtual Veterans’ Day
On November 11th, Jericho Project honored our nation’s veterans with a Virtual Veterans Day Event, Serving Those Who Served.
Led by a special Q&A with Commissioner of the New York City Department of Veterans’ Services James Hendon and Jericho’s CEO Tori Lyon, we explored the challenges facing veterans upon return to civilian life and what can be done to ease them. Commissioner Hendon addressed a wide range of issues, such as New York City’s commitment to supportive and affordable housing for veterans. New York is the only city with an agency dedicated to veterans services, he pointed out, connecting veterans to a variety of programs to support them wherever they are in their housing journey.
