How We Help Those Struggling With Alcohol & Substances

Although alcohol or illegal substances may not be used on, or brought onto New Horizons property, adults with active addictions are admitted. While not a treatment facility, we recognize that many of the chronically homeless who use our shelter are addicted to alcohol or other substances, and we work with them to seek treatment when they are ready.

  4. I stayed at this shelter 14 years ago. It was overcrowded, smelly, and just a mess. I don't know if there's new management or not, but my experience back then wasn't very good.

    I lost everything I had and ended up at New Horizon gave me a place to stay when it was cold out and needed help. I was so nervous the first night but the people were so nice and helpful to me.. I cant thank them enough for the chance they have given me.. Thank you all so much.

    Your shelter could very well be better. I haven't been there in fourteen years, and if it's anything like it was when I was there, then you need to improve the conditions.
