New Ground’s 13th annual Groundbreakers’ Celebration at the Carlyle on the Green in Bethpage State Park honored both Habitat for Humanity and the late Christopher Waldorf. Habitat for Humanity Nassau County was cited for their ongoing dedication to lower income families to become homeowners in Nassau County, including graduates of the New Ground program. Habitat’s program transforms lives and helps to promote positive and lasting social and economic change in a community.

All those in attendance at the celebration enjoyed a cocktail hour, dinner and dancing, and silent and premiere auctions. Proceeds from this event will support the many critical services and educational programs designed to help New Ground’s homeless families and veterans become self-supporting and independent.
