Our Mission

New Horizons empowers individuals with special needs to fulfill their dreams.

Through partnerships, community outreach, and advocacy we create a brighter future in which the people we serve are accepted by, participate in, and add value to the community.

Vision Statement

We envision a brighter world in which individuals with special needs are valued for their strengths and their challenges, their courage and their joy; where each person is afforded compassion and dignity, rights and opportunities as equal members of the community; and where our partnerships, community education, and advocacy have eliminated the difference between the culture of caring we provide at New Horizons and the quality of acceptance and caring provided by the community.

Core Values

  • Quality of Life

    We believe that persons with special needs should be able to lead healthy, safe, meaningful, and productive lives; exercise self-determination over their lives; fully participate in, be accepted by, and give back to the community in which they live.

  • A Culture of Caring

    We are committed to providing a culture of caring in which the clients we serve, families, staff, and volunteers feel valued and respected; their voices are heard; their opinions matter; and they are held in the highest regard.

  • Learning and Accomplishment

    We promote continuous learning and the pursuit of one’s potential, personal responsibility, and results based accomplishments.

  • Partnership

    We embrace partnerships with clients, families, staff, volunteers, business relationships, and community resources. Through these partnerships, we strive to enhance our ability to serve our clients and to provide value to our partners. Our services are based on client choice and preferences; teamwork among everyone; and partnerships with community resources.

  • The Pursuit of Excellence

    In everything we do, we are committed to the pursuit of excellence and devotion to the highest standards of professionalism, ethics, and integrity.

  • Accountability

    We hold ourselves accountable to those we serve, our partners, and to the community. As good stewards of the resources over which we have responsibility, we give the highest priority to managing these resources in a manner that sustains our mission and fosters the highest level of trust from all of our partners.

  • A Brighter Future

    We strive to create a brighter future for all by advocating inclusion and greater opportunities for individuals with special needs, serving as a community education resource, and providing value to the community.
