Go F.A.R.- Fathers Advancing and Reconnecting

New Destiny has established the Fathers Advance Initiative which has been branded as Go F.A.R.-Fathers. Advancing. Reconnecting, the acronym chosen by the dads leading and participating in the initiative. Our vision is a community where fathers are welcomed, celebrated and restored as contributors, protectors, and leaders in their families. Join Go F.A.R. for weekly support groups for fathers where we discuss issues such as sustaining a healthy marriage/relationship with their child’s mother, responsible parenting, and economic stability. As well as weekly support groups, Go F.A.R. also hosts monthly events for fathers/father figures and their children.

Mobile Senior Success Center Initiative

New Destiny Family Success Center was awarded a grant from The Housing Authority of the City of Paterson to establish a Mobile Senior Success Center. The project incorporates values and philosophies of the Family Success Center Practice Profile which are collaborative, community-based, culturally responsive, family-focused, flexible, strength-based, voluntary, welcoming, and holistic in its service delivery process. Recognizing that seniors are very diverse in their needs, much more active and youth-focused, the New Destiny team implemented a flexible strategy in response to the PHA senior resident community.
