VISION To uplift all those in our community
MISSION FOR TODAY Creating equitable housing and serving Manhattan's Lower East Side communities through neighborhood-based programs
MISSION FOR TOMORROW To ensure our community receives an equitable share in the social and economic changes of the neighborhood
SPRING BENEFIT: OVER THE RAINBOW Join us as we bring together in one space the Lower East Side's brightest and most impactful residents, entrepreneurs, leaders and among others. It's a unique experience that shines a light on those that serve our community. On this evening we we will be honoring:
- Isabel Ching, Executive Director of Hamilton Madison House, joins the ranks as a major Lower East Side (LES) leader. She has already demonstrated strong determination to serve the LES community, from child care to senior care and high quality mental health services.
- Bruce Radler, CEO & Founder of Basketball City, is a champion because he has committed Basketball City to give free court time to many of Lower East Side's youth, including schools and local organizations - a valuable gesture given the lack of open space and public basketball court space not readily available. And he kept his promise to do so!
- Carol Lamberg, former Executive Director of Settlement Housing Fund, dedicated her life to finding and building affordable housing for all New Yorkers. It was her vision and determination that helped create the Two Bridges neighborhood, along with 1,500 units of affordable housing. Her work was hardly confined to the Lower East Side as evidenced by the thriving New Settlement community in the Bronx and other projects city-wide.
