Our services for those, who have an intellectual/developmental disability, promote independence and self-sufficiency and enable those, who have an intellectual/developmental disability, to live meaningful lives in their community.
NEW HORIZONS COMMUNITY DAY SERVICES
We believe adults, who have an intellectual/developmental disability, should live meaningful and active lives. New Horizons Community Day Services provide wonderful opportunities for adults who have an intellectual/developmental disability. Through participation in educational groups in the program and outings in the community, adults, who have an intellectual/developmental disability, learn social skills, skills of independent living, and recreational/leisure skills.
Vocational services are also provided. For those who are not ready for community employment, trainees can learn work skills, which can lead to employment, by completing meaningful work for area businesses and by volunteering their time to many worthy causes in our community.
New Horizons Community Day Services are also available to consumers who have severe/profound intellectual/ developmental disabilities. Our staff are able to meet the specialized needs of those with more severe disabilities.
