Residential Services

New Horizons supports each consumer to live as independently as possible in the environment that offers the level of support they need.

Most consumers live independently. Some live in public housing. Many receive rent assistance from local public housing authorities. Some live in supervised programs or facilities where staff either visit frequently or are there 24 hours per day.

New Horizons owns and operates the following Residential Care Facilities licensed by the Missouri Department of Mental Health and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services:

  • Melody House - a 15-bed facility located at 3031 South Ten Mile Drive; Jefferson City, MO. Rooms are single occupancy. 
  • Harambee House - a 15-bed facility located at 703 North Eighth Street; Columbia, MO. Rooms are single-occupancy. 

Melody House and Harambee House residents are provided with room, board, routine care, twenty-four hour per day staff supervision, and full CPRP services.
