Annual Cocktail Benefit

Over 380 friends, colleagues and supporters joined us on April 10 to celebrate our accomplishments and honor:

David L. Picket, President, Gotham Organization, Inc.

Molly, Park, Deputy Commissioner, NYC Dept. of Housing Preservation and Development

The New York Community Trust, Natasha Lifton,
Senior Program Officer, Promising Futures/Human Services

In courageously telling her story, our tenant speaker reminded each of us why we fight every day for New Yorkers who are at risk of homelessness and domestic violence:

When I moved into my apartment from a shelter, my daughter was so happy she ran around the entire apartment looking for new hiding spots. I finally had a place to call home. My daughter finally had a place to enjoy her play dates, something she hadn’t done in so long.

New Destiny has helped me become more independent. It has helped my daughter become more interactive and make new friends within the building. New Destiny helped me get the job that I have today — I am a case manager at a nonprofit that assists youth on public assistance. Overall, I wouldn’t be where I am at today if it wasn’t for New Destiny.
