About Us

New Horizons is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals with special needs reach their potential and fulfill their dreams.  Founded in 1954 by eight parents whose children had special needs, the agency has evolved to provide services and support each year to more than 1,600 individuals (age 18 and older) and social/recreational services to nearly 3,000 individuals from throughout the greater San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys of Los Angeles.

Located on a beautiful four-acre campus in North Hills, California, New Horizons provides job training and placement, education, counseling, residential services, and social programs.  That said, our commitment to our clients extends far beyond  the programs and services we offer, as New Horizons provides each person we serve the individual attention needed to gain confidence, skills, dignity and independence at his or her highest level.
