Jericho Project has completed construction on its first veterans residence, Fordham Village!

Jericho Project’s 2006 strategic plan identified homeless veterans as a key population to benefit from its unique supportive housing model.  The following year Jericho began a concerted effort to expand its supportive housing program to address the local and national issue of homeless veterans.  Jericho Project’s Veterans Initiative includes:

  • The development of new supportive housing for veterans;
  • The creation of an evidence-based veterans service model based on Jericho’s proven model; and
  • Strategic efforts to stimulate the further development of supportive and affordable housing initiatives for veterans nationwide.

Jericho is opening its two new veteran residences in 2011 — the first new supportive housing programs for veterans in New York City in 17 years and has expanded its Supportive Apartment Program to include 50 units for homeless veterans.  Together, the congregate residences and supportive apartments will provide 182 units of supportive housing to homeless and low-income veterans.
