On Thursday, November 11th, Joe and Ali Torre were eager to welcome back Safe At Home’s New York community for the return of our Annual New York City Gala. This 19th annual gala reflected our community’s dedication to hope, healing, and resilience, and the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and the 2001 World Series Yankees Team. Safe At Home would like to thank our sponsors, guests, and supporters for making this night unforgettable!

All proceeds will benefit Safe At Home’s programs, providing critical services to youth. As we begin the process of recovery, the aftermath of the pandemic finds more young people and families in need than ever. Our students are counting on Safe At Home to help them heal – and to thrive. With the help of our Safe At Home community, we’ll be there.

Your generosity allows Safe At Home to provide healing, hope and empowerment to youth impacted by violence and abuse.

For more information, please contact Jennifer at jennifer@joetorre.org or call 917-608-7692.

If you could not attend but wish to make a donation, we would be so grateful for your support. You can visit our donation page to do so.
