The Bob Woodruff Foundation is the nonprofit dedicated to ensuring injured service members and their families are thriving long after they return home. A national organization with grassroots reach, the Bob Woodruff Foundation complements the work of the federal government—diligently navigating the maze of more than 40,000 nonprofits providing services to veterans—finds, funds and shapes innovative programs, and holds them accountable for results. The Bob Woodruff Foundation was co-founded in 2006 by award-winning anchor Bob Woodruff and his family, whose own experiences inspired them to help make sure our nation’s heroes have access to the high level of support and resources they deserve, for as long as they need it.
Robin Hood is New York’s largest poverty-fighting organization, and since 1988 has focused on finding, funding, and creating programs and schools that generate meaningful results for families in New York’s poorest neighborhoods. Since its founding, Robin Hood has distributed more than $1.45 billion in grants and initiatives to hundreds of New York City-based soup kitchens, homeless shelters, schools, job training programs, and other vital services that give New York’s neediest citizens the tools they need to build better lives for themselves and their families.
In 1983 a group of caring New Yorkers founded Jericho Project. Growing from our genesis as a small housing program that helped homeless men and women move off the street, Jericho now provides nearly 600 units of supportive housing as well as significant life-changing services to over 1,000 homeless and at-risk adults and children throughout New York City.
The goal of Jericho’s Veterans Initiative is to increase supportive and affordable housing options and to create employment opportunities for homeless and low-income veterans in New York City.
