A Message from the Executive Director

As a person-centered-organization, New Horizons' focus has always been caring for and meeting the needs of each participant we serve. Our decisions are guided by the preferences, needs, and values of each participant. We pride ourselves on being respectful and responsive to each person and their families. We have identified a framework that encompasses these person-centered tenets. We display compassion, dignity, and freedom of choice. We encourage independence, equal rights, and respect, always. We put our interests aside for those we support and offer the most appropriate solutions for each individual.
New Horizons has established a set of core values which include:
  • New Horizons prioritizes the participants we support, their families, and their communities.
  • New Horizons is a gateway for connections through natural support with family, friends, and community.
  • New Horizons values our Direct Support Professionals and their contributions to each participant’s growth and quality of life.
  • New Horizons strives to be a trusted advocate for the participants we support.
As we move forward, our programs continue to increase in number. Participants and their families are feeling more and more comfortable about returning to in-person services. Our goal for 2021-2022 is to cautiously transition our teams back into the community; utilizing our community-based service model to deliver services in community integrated settings five days per week. New Horizons will continue to follow all guidance from the State, County and the CDC regarding any community health warnings as it relates to COVID-19 and the Delta Variants. We will continue to be part of a community that takes a preventative stance on mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and will continue to ensure that the people we support each day are kept healthy in a safe environment.
Together we will continue to change the world, one need, one disability at a time. Please join us in this effort by making a gift to support our work in 2022. Thank you for everything you do to advance equity for all people.
