JVS goes beyond "stop gap" measures by providing programs in which clients gain benefits that are not only immediate, but that also multiply over a lifetime. In fact, an independent study shows that every $1 invested in JVS by a funder yields returns to a client of $2 - $3 in higher earnings within the first 1-2 years of program completion and returns of $5 - $15 within 5-10 years after completion. A contribution to JVS is more than a gift; it is an investment in people.
