TICKET TO WORK

IF YOU ARE RECEIVING BENEFITS THROUGH THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION, YOU MAY HAVE A TICKET TO WORK. New Horizons is an Employment Network through the Social Security Administration. It is our belief that assisting consumers to return to work strongly supports our mission, as financial and economic stability is often a barrier to living independently. Interested applicants should contact Kris Carrier on her direct number at 318-517-0980.

THE GREEN PROGRAM

"Giving Recycled/Reusable Equipment for Everyday Needs"

The New Horizons GREEN program is always open to donations of durable medical equipment, assistive devices, and medical supplies. Your donations are tax deductible! We are in need of donations now, as we were able to provide many with needed equipment in the local shelters for Harvey evacuees.

If you are in need of durable medical equipment, assistive devices, or medical supplies, please call Mitch Iddins at 318-671-8131 or 1-877-219-7327. We are happy to give you what has been donated to us. You may use our GREEN program for temporary or permanent needs.
