New Horizons Un-Limited was founded by Arthur Miller in December 1994. Upon attending a community meeting to discuss controversy over residential housing for individuals with disabilities, Art observed, that yet again, a key ingredient was missing from this meeting - representation from the disability community.
It was at this point that he realized the importance of enabling individuals with disabilities to take a more active role in determining their own destiny. He believed that if individuals with disabilities were given a means to communicate with one another, and most importantly, a means to access information and resources concerning the issues that affect them, they might be able to make a positive change in their own and others lives.
Thus began New Horizons Un-Limited. What started as a small website, with just a few visitors a month, has grown into a service organization, serving thousands of people impacted by disability annually via our internationally accessed website and local community initiatives.
We help individuals realize their full potential, capitalize on their strengths, and develop a sense of self worth so that they may in turn help others do the same. We are building a network of advocates, including all members of society, that believe in the power of service and community. While we face a seemingly overwhelming task, we are confident that if we come together, build each other up, and support each other, we can realize our vision – a world that values all individuals, including those of us with disabilities.
