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

Breaking Ground operates nearly 4,000 units of housing across New York City, along with housing in upstate New York and Connecticut. Supportive housing - affordable housing paired with services designed to help people maintain their homes for the long-term - is widely recognized as a proven and cost-effective solution to chronic homelessness.

But we didn't stop at providing housing. Breaking Ground's programs and services help people experiencing street homelessness - especially those who have been on the streets the longest - to come indoors. Through our Street to Home outreach program and transitional housing resources, we help people get, and stay, on the path to a permanent home.

The Programs Department at Breaking Ground is responsible for all social service delivery and day-to-day operations of Breaking Grounds programs, including street outreach, drop-in center, transitional housing, scatter site permanent housing, and Domench & Redwood senior residences.The Department plays an integral role in Breaking Grounds overall mission of ending homelessness by providing the foundation for individuals to make a successful transition from homelessness, through immediate services for homeless individuals and long-term support once people have been housed.The Sr. Director of Program Development is responsible for department wide initiatives and support and a portfolio of grant funded programs, which may include projects in development or start-up.The Sr. Director of Program Development plays a leadership role in the department and acts as a liaison with other Breaking Ground colleagues and departments and represents Breaking Ground to external stakeholders.
