Accepting the award at the April 20 benefit, Ms. Mullins thanked Freedom House saying “Freedom House connected me to New Destiny, and that’s where I regain normalcy. I should be giving you all an award for your help!”
New Destiny shared that Ms. Mullins’ journey “has not been without hardships, grief, & abuse. After becoming legally blind, she was abused by her children.” With support from Barrier Free Living (BFL) she was connected with New Destiny.
New Destiny Housing is committed to ending the cycle of domestic violence and homelessness by connecting survivors to safe, permanent, affordable housing and services.
Barrier Free Living recently celebrated its 40th Anniversary. BFL works with survivors of domestic violence with disabilities at its shelter and programs.
