De Blasio calls Common Ground “part of the solution”

On Tuesday, November 11th, Mayor Bill de Blasio called Common Ground “part of the solution” to veterans’ homelessness.

He was delivering remarks at a Mayoral Veterans Day Breakfast, which took place at the Prince George Ballroom, Common Ground’s famous event rental venue.

De Blasio thanked Common Ground for its contributions to New York, and pointed out that Prince George is home to nearly 40 veterans who might otherwise be living out on the streets. In fact, every year, Common Ground assists over 450 veterans through its outreach, transitional, and permanent housing programs.
