Currently, New Destiny owns and operates seven residential buildings with half of the units set aside for domestic violence survivors and their children. Recognizing that access to permanent housing is the cornerstone of long-term well-being, each building has a support system incorporated into its operations. The Family Support Program is comprised of an experienced social services team that works to connect our families to the care they need when they need it by tapping into internal expertise as well as leveraging external resources in the community. This includes tutoring for children, employment coaching for tenants, physical and emotional health referrals, and community building events.
