New Destiny, New York
According to the New York Department of Homeless Services, in 2016, domestic violence surpassed eviction as the primary reason for homeless shelter entrance. New Destiny’s Bainbridge Residences provide supportive affordable housing to low-income families moving from domestic violence shelters.
LIIF’s construction loan allowed the rehabilitation of 36 units, for which tenants – most of whom have Section 8 vouchers – will pay rents that are less than 50% of the local average. On-site services tailored to domestic abuse survivors include counseling, job readiness assistance, financial planning, and child and family programming.

LIIF’s financing supports the construction of facilities that will house a transitional living program and emergency shelter for homeless LGBT youth, a new senior supportive services center, a new at-risk youth service center, new headquarters for the Center and affordable housing for LGBT seniors.

Kingsley House, New Orleans
Kingsley House is unique in its co-habitation of services for low-income children and the elderly. Since the devastating impact of Hurricane Katrina, demand for Kingsley House’s programs has increased significantly. Nearly 500 families are currently on the waitlist for early childhood education, and the expansion has allowed Kingsley House to increase its enrollment by nearly 40%.
LIIF provided critical financing to support the construction of Kingsley’s state-of-the-art 24,000 square foot facility, which expanded its early childhood education and senior health services.
