We welcome members into the JOH community with hopes that they’ll do far more than graduate from one of our programs. As staff of treatment organizations, the opportunity to support members as they initiate and sustain their recovery is why we come to work every day. But at the JOH Project, we view treatment not as an end it itself, but as a cornerstone on which members build full and meaningful lives.
Linking members to safe and secure housing is central to our mission. We endorse a Housing First approach to wellness, which means we don’t expect members to “qualify for” or to “deserve” housing based on their recovery status. Although connecting members to permanent housing is an important milestone; it doesn’t mean our work is finished.
