Rising Ground Hope & Opportunity Gala
March 7, 2022 @ 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM
Join us in celebrating 190 years of hope & opportunity!
On March 7, 1831, the Leake & Watts Orphan House opened its doors in lower Manhattan. As society and the city of New York have evolved, so have we. We have moved and expanded. We have changed with the times and added programs to meet the needs of New Yorkers in need. From our earliest experience supporting children in the most crucial time in their lives, in their greatest moments of need, Rising Ground has grown into a leading nonprofit human services organization with more than 55 programs across New York City. Today, we provide children, adults, and families with the skills and resources to overcome various forms of adversity and find positive paths forward.
