New Ground, Inc. is a unique not-for-profit agency committed to educating and empowering families as well as individuals who are caught in the vicious cycle of homelessness. On Monday, May 19, New Ground will host its 19th Annual Golf Outing and Dinner at Garden City’s Cherry Valley Club.
This year’s honoree is Stony Brook resident Mitchell Pally, who serves as the chief executive officer of the Long Island Builders Institute (LIBI). New Ground will recognize Pally for his ongoing efforts to make Long Island a better place to work and live. The day includes brunch, golf, competitions on the course, cocktail hour, Chinese auction and dinner. Participation is requested to help raise much-needed funds which will benefit the homeless families and veterans in New Ground’s Program.
Founded in 1991, New Ground recognizes that the key to solving homelessness is not only to help the families who are homeless, but also work at preventing it in the future. The organization identifies and responds to those families-at-risk through intensive case management programs that provide educational, technical, and emotional support.
