Horizons Unlimited has been helping individuals become the best they can be for more than 40 YEARS! At Horizons, we focus on the ABILITIES in people who have disabilities.
Horizons Unlimited is open to anyone who is 18 years of age or older with a documented disability. The current population being served by Horizons includes people with intellectual disabilities, chronic mental illness, and developmental disabilities.
Horizons Unlimited offers residential, vocational and day habilitation programs. Horizons is the only organization of its kind to offer a day hab program in partnership with a community college. Horizons has received the highest accreditation CARF (the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitiation Facilities) can offer, which is a three-year accreditation. To receive a three-year certificate, Horizons has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable and accountable.
Horizons is a VPP Star Site for Iowa OSHA, which means Horizons’ safety standards are superior. Horizons has been a VPP site since 1998. Horizons is one of only 34 VPP sites in Iowa and it is the only facility of its kind in the United States to achieve this top safety and health award.
