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 in Jefferson City, MO. Rooms are single-occupancy.
  • Harambee House - a 15-bed facility located in 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 CPR Program services. The programmatic goals of the Houses include the following: assisting the resident to become more functionally independent, teaching daily living skills, shaping more appropriate behaviors, improving interpersonal relationships, stabilizing psychiatric symptoms and utilizing community resources. When residents have developed the skills necessary to live more independently, New Horizons assists them in moving to a new environment.
