Mission and Philosophy

Our Vision

New Horizons will be a leader in promoting a community culture, free of abuse where mutual respect and inclusiveness thrive.

Our Mission

New Horizons Shelter and Outreach Centers provide safety and services to adults and families who have experienced domestic and sexual abuse so that they can make decisions about their lives in a supportive, nonjudgmental and empowering atmosphere. We promote the concepts of non-violence and equality through intervention, prevention and education.

Our Philosophy

New Horizons Shelter and Outreach Centers oppose all forms of dominance over others. We support the right of people of all ages, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, color, religion, national origin, social class or differing abilities to live without fear, abuse and violence. We believe batterers must be held accountable for their actions and that systems must be responsible to the victim.
