ABOUT US: - We believe that everyone deserves a home!

Breaking Ground is a nonprofit social services organization in New York City. Our goal is to create high-quality permanent and transitional housing for the homeless.
Since 1990, we have been providing permanent affordable housing for individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Beginning with a single building, we are now New York Citys largest provider of supportive housing. We own and/or operate 19 properties with a total of 3,530 transitional and permanent apartments in New York City and beyond. We also run the Citys around-the-clock street outreach efforts in all of Brooklyn and Queens, along with nearly one-third of Manhattan.

As of 2017, we have more than 1,500 units of housing in various stages of development in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, and are expanding our outreach and transitional housing programs so that we can offer help to every single homeless person we meet.
