The Junkluggers Veteran Initiative

The Junkluggers Veteran Initiative was started in 2013 to provide gently used furniture and household items to formerly homeless veterans who are placed in apartments in the New York City area. The Junkluggers of Manhattan and Brooklyn have partnered with The Jericho Project, The Institute for Community Living, The Military Resilience Project, and Hope For the Warriors to furnish formerly homeless veterans’ new homes. In our first year we have helped over twenty local veterans furnish their homes with furniture straight from our community. We are committed to keeping the furniture we lug within our community, and making sure that those who have sacrificed for us have a home they can be proud of.

  • Hope for the Warriors

    The mission of Hope for the Warriors is to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty. Hope For The Warriors is dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for our service members and our military families.
  • The Institute for Community Living

    The ICL is a human service agency based in New York. They offer health care, mental health care, family support, residential assistance, and treatment to almost 10,000 adults, families, and children throughout New York City and Montgomery County, PA. Their mission is to assist individuals and families affected by or at risk of mental illness or developmental disabilities with integrated comprehensive care designed to improve their wellbeing, recovery and participation in community living.
  • The Military Resilience Project

    The Military Resilience Project believes that resiliency and reintegration has as much to do with the community as it does those who have served.  They focus on weaving Prevention, Advocacy, and Sustainability into all areas of support, in order to facilitate the best possible outcomes.  All too often there is a focus on the “problems” that a service member, veteran, or military family may be challenged by, and less of a focus on creating spaces and opportunities for our military to be heard in the everyday. Their Philosophy is to provide integrative behavioral health solutions that revolve around the concept of building strength and sustainability, from micro to macro levels of functionality.
  • The Jericho Project

    The Jericho Project encourages people to envision a healthier future for themselves and their families and empowers them to take the necessary steps to achieve it. Their programs touch the cornerstones of a person’s life — housing, employment, wellness and family stability. This holistic approach to helping people enables individuals to access extensive, results-based programs at their level of need — whether they are coming to us from a shelter, or are one paycheck away from homelessness.
