Each year, nearly 4,000 chronically homeless and low-income individuals are able to attain and sustain stability through Breaking Ground’s programs. The annual Celebrating Home & Community Gala is our agency’s single largest source of private philanthropic support during any given year for programs serving homeless and at-risk New Yorkers.

Even if you are unable to attend, please consider contributing to this event by making a fully tax deductible donation for our cause. Doing so will benefit a great many vulnerable New Yorkers.
