Without Direct Support Professionals – What Would Their Lives Be Like?

Direct Support Professional Recognition Week – September 10-16

In recognition of the dedication and accomplishments of Horizon House’s outstanding Direct Support Professionals, we express our sincere appreciation for their vital contributions to the individuals we serve, their families and communities.

September 10-16 is a national celebration of DSP’s, who ensure that people with disabilities have the necessary supports that enable them to live, work, and enjoy life as independently as possible in their community.

Horizon House DSP’s we salute you!

Whole Foods and Housing First Treatment Teams

Early each Friday morning, for nearly ten years, Horizon House staff and participants have loaded a van of non-perishables and produce from the South Street Whole Foods Market for distribution to the nearly 90 chronically homeless persons supported by the Housing First Treatment Teams (HFTT) whose primary goal is to stabilize chronically homeless individuals in permanent housing.

Recently, Whole Foods partnered with Food Donation Connection to expand their capabilities to link surplus food to those in need through nonprofits like Horizon House. For us, this means we will be able to provide healthy food options to other Horizon House programs. The Navigation Center, which provides a safe haven overnight respite for 50-75 chronically homeless adults, is the targeted pilot program.

Thank you, South Street Whole Foods Market team members for being part of the Horizon House community.

the Great American Smoke-Out


Horizon House joins other agencies and organizations to create a safer and healthier environment and community. Our goal: to make our properties tobacco-free and smoke-free by June 30, 2018. To achieve success in changing the culture to better address tobacco use, we will provide the necessary resources and support for members of the Horizon House Community who are struggling with tobacco cessation.
This agency-wide initiative is championed by our President and CEO, Jeff Wilush, with a Change Team comprised of executives, staff, and participants from every service area and region. The soft launch is scheduled for the Fall Festival, a themed occasion on September 21st, where participants and staff enjoy a carnival-like event. The major launch will coincide with the “Great American Smokeout” in November.
Quitting is not a sprint but a marathon and we are up for the challenge!
