From the Director: Thank you for making Ascendant’s 2019 benefit a huge success!

Cheers to another year of building homes and raising up communities, and to another annual benefit filled with laughter and celebration!

We were thrilled to honor Kelly Carroll and Laurie Schoeman — two driven, dynamic, and talented advocates who work tirelessly to preserve and protect our communities. We are deeply grateful to Kelly and Laurie for joining our celebration and sharing their work and passion with our guests. We also extend enormous thanks to our event underwriters, patrons, sponsors, friends, and supporters. We literally could not have done it without you.

Our event programming also celebrated Ascendant’s successes and new projects, including several new deeply affordable residential projects in Northern Manhattan, the completion of an extensive rehabilitation of 21 of our buildings, our new Enterprise Community Partners Rose Architectural Fellow, Ascendant’s designation for a new City-led shared housing pilot, and more. You can read all about our growing pipeline of development projects at our Pipeline page.

And you can reach out to us any time with comments or questions about our work at

We thank you all for celebrating with us and for your continued support, partnership, and friendship. We’ve had a big year, and we’re looking forward to an even busier 2020.
