Residential Habilitation: In 1981 New Horizons Resources opened its first residences for adults with developmental disabilities in New York’s Hudson Valley. Today, the agency maintains 30 houses and 15 supportive apartments in Dutchess and Ulster counties that provide homes to over 200 people ranging in age from their early 20s into their 90s. Our direct support staff is committed to supporting those we serve as individuals and setting individual goals that enable everyone to reach their personal potential. We encourage and incent our direct support staff to continually update their skills to ensure we are using the latest therapies and techniques available when helping those we serve. Our commitment to providing on going staff development as well as living options and therapeutic supports for people of all abilities at every stage of their lives is what sets New Horizons apart.

Community Habilitation: A variety of options are available for adults living independently, with family members or in a certified setting.

Respite: This program supports caregivers who take care of their loved ones at home. The respite worker comes into the home so the caregiver can go out and attend to other responsibilities knowing their loved one is in a safe and nurturing environment.

Day Habilitation: NHR operates a small day hab in Napanoch, NY so people receiving services in Ulster County have an option close to home. A larger Day Hab program is operated at West Road in Pleasant Valley for people with autism and other more complex needs. West Road is also the meeting point for NHR’s Day Hab without walls (WOW). Participants in this program investigate rural life including working with outdoor farm animals at NHR’s Briggs Farm, hiking, biking and outdoor exercise.

Weekend respite and the Briggs Farm summer camp have been paused until further notice due to Covid restrictions.
