Family Support Program


Support Families

At New Destiny, we understand that each family member copes differently. We have support systems in place to help families make a smooth transition.

Family Support Program

New Destiny offers on-site services to tenants in our permenant housing through our Family Support Program. Staff collaborate with survivors to help them overcome obstacles on their path to independence and self-sufficiency. Our Family Support Program empowers all of our tenants and offers them the support they need to build a better tomorrow for themselves and their children.

The Family Support Program is a successful model for delivering services that results in housing stability – nearly all of our tenants remain stably housed each year – and ends the cycle of violence in these families. The outcome is that families remain intact and children are given a chance to flourish and succeed academically. A recent study of the Family Support Program by researchers from Rutgers University and Baruch College found that our affordable, permanent housing combined with specially tailored services provides housing stability and a foundation that allows survivors to progress in other areas of their lives.
