New Horizons of Northwest Florida, Inc. - Lighting the Way to Independence for over 74 years!

New Horizons of Northwest Florida, Inc.
is a  local organization that was originally established in 1942 as "The Northwest FL Crippled Children's Association" to  serve polio victims.  The American Legion Auxiliary, Unit #33, saw a need and responded by starting a home and has been a continued supporter ever since.

From the beginning, the organization has been serving developmentally and physically challenged people in our community. These services have grown to include habilitation training by licensed occupational, physical and speech therapists –  all  personalized to  the needs of each client.   

New   Horizon's  24-hour  staff   consists  of  RNs,  LPNs,  Qualified  Mental Retardation   Professionals,   a   Social   Worker,   Direct  Care   and   Auxiliary   staff.

In 1980, the established Crippled Children’s Home on Avery Street was relocated to its present  location ** Northview  Community  site  at 10050 Hillview  Drive,  Pensacola, FL, 32514.

Since  then,  with  the  community’s  help,  Vera  Manor  Group Home a home for non-ambulatory clients and Kingsfield Group Home  a  home  for  ambulatory clients and each licensed for up to 7 developmentally/physically challenged adults.  In 2008 the Emerald Coast Workshop (day program - Monday thru Friday) was relocated to  its  present  location to  help  meet  the individual  needs  of this growing population.
