Our son has been transformed through the ministry of the Jericho House. He was trapped in a life of addiction with multiple attempts to fix things himself with the help of counseling and other treatment programs. With the experience of the Jericho House leadership and their ability to lead residents to a regenerated life, we have seen the lives of many men completely changed. The opportunity afforded the men to better understand every aspect of themselves is resulting in service-oriented sober men desiring an interactive part in their families and mankind. What more could we possibly want?

Two years ago Larry McKenna helped my son begin his long journey to recover from the addiction of drugs and alcohol. Through his intervention we were able to get the help my son so desperately needed. Larry gave of his time freely and generously never asking for anything. Larry is a good Christian man who cares deeply for those in need. Larry provided several options for treatment and recovery that included other programs. We ultimately chose another recovery center and Larry helped make arrangement to get my son into that program. My son is two years clean and sober this month. If not for Larry I know that I may not have a son today. I will be forever grateful to this wonderful human being.

I have followed the work at Jericho house for over 4 years. ?The work that they are doing has helped many otherwise helpless cases get back into society. Yes he is tough. It take a tough love approach to get people to admit their addiction and beat it. His program is based on the biblical principles of gods forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
