Sponsorship

We at Breaking Ground are delighted to invite you to attend the Gala in person at The Glasshouse, a stunning venue with views of the Hudson River and Manhattan's West Side. Your sponsorships of the Gala enable us to serve more of New York's most vulnerable residents - people living unsheltered on the City's streets - and help them come indoors to permanent supportive housing. Thank you for standing with us and with the people we serve.
