People with developmental disabilities come in all sizes and shapes, all ages, all colors and with a range of capabilities.
New Horizon Counseling Center staff always focuses on the many positive capabilities our consumers have and the many opportunities we can create for their growth and development. We have discovered that when we empower others to take their place as respected contributors to the community, we are also empowering ourselves.
