Guardian CEO Honored for Dedication to Project Renewal

Deanna Mulligan, President and CEO of Guardian, was recently honored by Project Renewal, a nonprofit organization that empowers homeless New Yorkers to renew their lives through comprehensive medical, housing and job programs.

Project Renewal raised over $1.5 million at its 27th Annual Gala Benefit and Auction, held June 8 at Spring Studios.

Mulligan is a former member of Project Renewal’s Board of Trustees and has demonstrated her dedication to ending homelessness in New York City through her generous support of the organization.

“The scope of Project Renewal’s programs is unparalleled in New York City, helping hundreds of thousands find housing, healthcare and jobs over the past 50 years,” stated Mulligan. “I’m honored to be part of the Project Renewal community.”

Mulligan was instrumental in developing a strategic plan for Project Renewal in 1996 that led to the creation of two of the organization’s signature programs: Renewal Farm, a residential addiction treatment program in Garrison, New York; and City Beet Kitchens, a social-purpose catering company that employs formerly homeless, unemployed, and at-risk men and women.
