Our Mission

Jobs Have Priority, Inc’s mission is to help people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless seek, obtain, and retain employment and secure housing.

JHP operates two shelters in Prince George’s County and one in Washington, DC. Our shelters provide meals, assistance with clothing and household essentials, comprehensive case management and wrap around services, which provide residents with the tools they need to become self-sufficient.

Adult residents participate in life skills, financial planning, education and employment classes, our Read, Learn and Earn program, Wellness Journey program, and our Healthy Mind, Healthy Life meditation program. Children at JHP are also provided with tutoring and enrichment activities, like our Reading Circle program. Each shelter houses a computer lab equipped with high-speed Internet and a business office for the residents’ use.
