Jericho Project’s Supportive Housing Program helps people conquer the multitude of issues that lead them into homelessness, including substance abuse, mental health illnesses, trauma and poverty.
To qualify for Jericho Project’s Supportive Housing Program you must be a single adult, at least 21 years of age, and chronically homeless (each residence may require additional criteria). If you believe you are eligible, please call the residences on our Contact page to discuss further.
Nearly 500 Units of Supportive Housing + 70 Units of Scattered Site Housing
Starting as a modest 35-unit program, Jericho’s Supportive Housing Program now provides more than 400 units of supportive housing in New York City. We own and operate eight congregate supportive housing residences – one in Central Harlem and seven in the Bronx – that provide 474 units, and manage a scatter-site program with 70 units that places residents in apartments rented on the open market throughout New York City.
Providing Individualized Support
Jericho’s holistic service model provides the individualized support people need to maintain their sobriety, heal from the traumas they have suffered, and rebuild relationships with their families as well as the intensive services required to secure and maintain employment.
Jericho Project has an excellent track record of helping our clients remain housed. Last year, 95% of residents maintained stable housing after admission to Jericho, and 8% graduated from our programs into independent living.
In 2016, 86% of residents with a diagnosed substance abuse disorder in remission maintained their sobriety, a remarkable outcome when the standard sobriety rate according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse is 20-40%.
On With Life Program
Jericho’s On With Life Program (OWL) works with residents in our Supportive Housing Program who have secured sufficient stability and income to live completely independently. The program helps residents identify affordable housing and make a healthy transition from supported life at Jericho to independent living. After the transition to independent living, OWL Counselors are on hand to provide services to “graduates” for up to two years to help them maintain their sobriety and housing stability.
