On March 20th, New Destiny Housing honored Commissioner/CEO Darryl C. Towns, in recognition of HCR’s commitment to creating long-term security and stability for low-income families and individuals at risk of domestic violence and homelessness.

HCR and New Destiny have collaborated on several projects, including The Anderson in the Bronx which opened in December 2012.

Commissioner Towns said, “Safe housing is critical for domestic violence survivors who are trying to rebuild their lives away from violent partners. Under Governor Cuomo’s leadership, the creation of supportive housing has been a policy and budget priority. We know that this type of housing provides the resources to help these individuals and families take the journey from chaotic family dynamics to secure, stable homes. I congratulate New Destiny and our government partners for a project that mixes low-income and supportive housing in a sustainable green development which grows the family, grows the community, grows jobs, and strengthens the economy.”

New Destiny builds service-enriched housing, provides services and programs to help victims of violence become and remain stably housed.
