Teamwork is not a game for the selfish. It is for those with the mindset that a win for one is a win for all.
~ Michael Bassey Johnson
It is so easy for most of us to get caught up in the chaos of the individual mindset, especially during this rapidly changing time of social distancing. Staying connected is of primary importance to the Jericho Road community, not just for the men living in our homes, but for you, our Jericho friends and supporters. Your health – body, soul and spirit – is important to us.
