Walter’s Story


Walter experienced homelessness on the streets of Brooklyn for six years. With help from Breaking Ground’s street outreach teams, he eventually moved inside to our Safe Haven transitional residence - The Andrews - on the Lower East Side. Just over a year later, he found permanent housing at our Times Square supportive housing residence, where he has been living since February. With safe, stable housing he has been able to address his medical concerns and get the help he needs to remain in housing for the long term.

When you give to Breaking Ground, you help thousands of people just like Walter make their way from street to home.
