History and background of the organization: Horizons Residential Care Center has been a part of the Winston-Salem, Rural Hall, and greater Forsyth County area, since 1973 when the Junior League of Winston-Salem chartered the first Horizons home for children living with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and extensive support needs. The Horizons Board of Directors, led by Mrs. Will P. Hanes, sought to bring meaningful residential services to Forsyth county and succeeded in doing so. Horizons has grown and changed in many ways since that initial charter was established, welcoming the Atrium home in 1989 and the Arches home in 1992. We are honored to continue advancing our Horizons Mission of serving people with higher medical acuity, and facilitating supports to live a desirable life. Please join us in becoming a part of our legacy and history today!

Current Projects, Mental Health Initiatives:
Horizons is leading the way in several areas impacting our health care and disability support services systems.
Quality of Life framework to inform Person-Centered Planning and Quality Outcomes data reporting:
Horizons has adopted an 8 domain Quality of Life framework, research based for the people we serve, to inform the creation of person-centered plans, service goals, and reporting for continuous quality improvement efforts. We are partnered with three sister organizations (Holy Angels, Carobell, and Arc of Davidson) also piloting the implementation of the Quality of Life framework.
Disability Support Professionalization Program
Horizons is working with a cross section of stakeholders, to implement a Disability Support Professional training program to assist with workforce demand, pre-employment training, quality of service provision, and expansion of meaningful career paths/wages. This pilot training program is launching in Jan. 2021 and you can learn more on our accompanying page.
