ACE will be honoring our most recent group of Project Comeback graduates on August 16th at the Scholastic Building (557 Broadway, between Prince and Spring Sts) from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  These formerly homeless men and women have made a commitment to turning their lives around with ACE’s help.  You may have seen our dedicated cleaning crews around town, but this is a chance to experience the profound change that ACE can effect.

Please join the entire ACE family, your fellow New Yorkers, and the proud friends and family of the graduates as we honor their remarkable achievements.  Light refreshments will be served after the ceremony. To R.S.V.P., contact Deana Murtha at 212-274-0550 ext. 52 or
