“enabling people with disabilities to live independently.”

New Horizons Independent Living Center

Established in 1984, New Horizons Independent Living Center is a private, non-profit, non-residential, consumer-controlled, community-based organization serving the 29 parishes of North Louisiana with offices in Shreveport, Alexandria, and Monroe.

Welcome to New Horizons!

When in Shreveport, visit our Consumer Center to take advantage of accessible computers and training, as well as support groups and social events. The Consumer Center is available for meetings of disability-related groups.

Changes that make life more satisfying don’t occur overnight. But, for people who are willing to work toward greater independence, New Horizons Independent Living Center can help put the pieces together.
