Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano congratulated Paul F. Broderick, Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Social Services (DSS), on receiving the 2017 Key of Excellence Award from the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless. Broderick received the award at the Coalition’s annual Keys Conference on Friday, Oct. 20, at Touro Law School.
“Congratulations to Paul Broderick for receiving the Key of Excellence Award from the LI Coalition for the Homeless, for his hard work and dedication in service of this widespread issue,” said County Executive Mangano. “Paul has emerged as a county-wide leader in representing the urgent needs of the homeless in Nassau County and throughout Long Island.”
According to the LI Coalition for the Homeless, the Key of Excellence is awarded to outstanding members of the business, housing and/or human services community, for their innovative approach to addressing needs of Long Island’s poor and underserved men, women and children, and finding solutions for the issues that challenge those in need.
DSS Commissioner, Dr. John Imhof, also expressed his congratulations to Paul, noting his “tenacious and effective leadership in bringing together disparate agencies to collaborate on this issue. All of Paul’s DSS colleagues are indeed proud of his commitment and dedication to providing safe shelters for homeless individuals and families, as well as working towards finding new opportunities to securing permanent housing.”
“Paul Broderick has been a tremendous partner to the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless and the Continuum of Care, engaging in solutions-based strategies to reduce and eventually end homelessness in our region,” said Greta Guarton, Executive Director of the LI Coalition for the Homeless. “We are incredibly grateful for his partnership, and the partnership of the Nassau County Department of Social Services, in this undertaking.”
