Description :

Founded in 1994, New Destiny Housing Corporation is a New York City non-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 our mission, we build and manage permanent, affordable housing with on-site services; offer innovative programs that empower domestic violence survivors to find and retain affordable housing; and educate and advocate to expand access to permanent housing resources for low-income families.

Since 1994, New Destiny has developed 16 residential projects. It currently owns and manages seven rental projects housing 500 adults and children and two shelters. Three additional service-enriched affordable rental projects are under development yielding an additional 183 units for domestic violence survivors in shelter.

In addition to developing new buildings, New Destiny incubated HousingLink an innovative citywide program that provides a continuum of services to prevent or reduce shelter use and support housing stability for low-income domestic violence survivors and their children. In collaboration with five borough-based Family Justice Centers, HousingLink connects domestic violence survivors with apartments across the five boroughs. HousingLink provides skill-building workshops and technical assistance to domestic violence survivors and their advocates to help them overcome obstacles related to finding and maintaining safe housing and increase their knowledge of permanent housing options.

New Destiny has created a new position to greatly expand the number of survivors the HousingLink team can house each year. The Manager of Housing Partnerships will develop a new cohort of landlords and property management firms who are able to increase HousingLink’s capacity to house domestic violence survivors and develop a plan to manage and strengthen existing landlord partnerships. The qualified candidate will report directly to the Director of HousingLink.
