The Destiny Program is a non-profit organization based in Las Vegas, Nevada, founded by Steve Philostin and named in 2021 after five-year-old Destiny Krystel Philostin.
The Destiny Program empowers individuals, families, and single-parent family units experiencing homelessness with affordable housing.
We believe that becoming a homeowner brings pride of ownership and a host of other benefits, giving families living in homelessness a solid start to a better life.
Steve experienced tough times himself and created The Destiny Program not just as a way to give back, but because he truly believed that housing first for those at risk and most marginalized in our society is a core component of making everyone’s lives better.
Steve owns the modular prefab tiny home company Out of the Box Housing. He envisioned using the company’s expertise, and when appropriate, its products, to create tiny homes and tiny home villages for single mothers, military veterans, the working homeless population, and former inmates, as well as other at-risk populations.
The Destiny Program works with partner organizations that can offer wrap around services integrated, or nearby, these villages and housing developments.
Out of the Box Housing offers prefabricated modular homes that are easy to assemble. Unlike the small houses featured on Tiny House Nation, you don’t have to build these tiny homes from scratch. The company offers complete kits which include all the necessary materials for a basic tiny home:
