New Horizons of Northwest Florida, Inc.
New Horizons of Northwest Florida, Inc. is a local organization which was originally established as “The Northwest Florida Crippled Children Association” on January 10, 1942, to serve individuals suffering from Polio.
The American Legion Auxiliary Unit #33 saw a need to serve and started the first home to meet the needs of those in the community. Licensed in 1978 as an Intermediate Care Facility for the Developmentally Disabled, the first in the Pensacola Florida area.
Overtime there continued to be a need to help and support families and individuals in the community. With the realization to promote quality healthcare, personal growth, and development became a vision to serve a greater need, the lives of others.
Years later the organization was renamed as New Horizons of Northwest Florida Inc. to continue the organizations growing development.
The New Horizons Agency employs around 100 staff members that provide care to 60-70 residential and community consumers. All members of our staff are trained to provide an exceptional level of care to each individual. The management staff has tenure from a year to over 40 years working with persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We strive to promote independence and create an environment to promote optimal health.
