“So often people focus on the bad news coming out of the shelter system,” said David Broxton, a formerly homeless cancer survivor and Care for the Homeless client. “We want to put the focus on the successes of New Yorkers who have experienced homelessness - people do get back on their feet with the right services available to them.”
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the dining room and gardens at Red Oak Apartments, 135 W. 106th Street in Manhattan, on Monday, June 22, at 4:30 p.m. In addition to celebrating health care stories of success, the group will also announce the winner of their Second Annual Stories of Success writing contest, and the winning short story will be read by the winning author. The program will also feature a full dinner, musical entertainment and a “Wall of Success” exhibition inviting anyone in attendance to contribute their own story of health care success.
