January 10, 2020
we celebrated 78 years of service to the Pensacola area.
New Horizons of Northwest Florida, Inc.
is a local organization that was originally established on
January10, 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.
