Horizons has provided me with a safe place to rest my head at night when I have had nowhere else to turn. The staff provide life skills to each resident in their own unique ways. They take the time one on one to see how they can better your situation. Furthermore, there are an advanced number of resources that have helped me to obtain the rest of my high school credits and pursue a job according to my interests. I like the programs at Horizons. The staff cater to each and everyone’s different needs, they listen, reach out, sit down and actually listen to your problems. If it weren’t for Horizons, I think I would be on the streets, in jail or possibly dead. Horizons gives hope and a chance to those who are down on their luck

Horizons for Youth provides Individualized Case Management and ensures that every youth is assigned a primary Case Manager. Case Managers work one- on-one with each youth and conduct appropriate assessment and referrals. Together, the pair work toward identifying goals and creating a plan to achieve them. These goals are focused on education, employment, health and safety, financial matters, legal issues, personal identification, and housing. Case Managers help break down a youth’s long-term goals into small manageable steps to achievement.
