New Destiny Housing Corporation is a citywide not-for-profit with the mission of ending the cycle of violence for low-income families and individuals at risk of homelessness and domestic violence by connecting them to safe, permanent housing and services. To achieve its mission, New Destiny develops and manages housing with on-site services; offers innovative programs that empower victims of abuse to find and retain affordable housing; and educates and advocates to increase permanent housing resources for low-income families.
New Destiny has a staff of 30 employees, a 20-member volunteer Board of Directors, and an annual budget of $2.5 million. It owns and manages a real estate portfolio of 12 projects valued at more than $54 million throughout New York City, most of which were funded with Low Income Housing Tax Credits. New Destiny provides services at its permanent housing for tenants, more than half of whom are previously homeless survivors of domestic violence, through the Family Support Program. It also operates HousingLink which provides housing training and technical assistance to survivors of domestic violence and links eligible survivors to safe, affordable housing.
