Due to the recent changes in Medicaid funding and the difficult financial times people are facing, New Horizons realized the need to establish a way to allow past, present and future particpants the opportunity to attend New Horizons despite their financial need.

The Rays of Hope fund is just that! We don’t want financial circumstances to prevent ANYONE from benefiting from the services offered at New Horizons Adult Day Center. The Rays of Hope Fund is supported by donations from generous people like you. Our goal is for the Rays of Hope Fund to be self-sustaining so that there will never be a gap in services for our participants. Every donation, large or small, is accepted and appreciated. New Horizons Adult Day Center is a 501(c)3 organization and every donation is tax deductibale.
