Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities Services
Home residences and day programs for adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities to positively change lives.
The definition of habilitation is: “Health care services that help a person keep, learn or improve skills and functioning for daily living.”
All people want to live their best life – being as independent as possible. Horizon offers habilitation services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to learn useful, safe and appropriate living skills in all areas of community and daily life. Our focus is to provide individuals with the skills needed to live a meaningful, self-directed life – in a comfortable and positive environment – and to have access to the same opportunities as everyone else.
How We Can Help
Horizon offers assistance through a contractual partnership with Arizona’s Division of Developmental Disabilities. Our services embrace a person-centered philosophy, which emphasizes individuality, personal choice, inclusion and integration.
Horizon provides a variety of habilitation services, including residential and day treatment services. The Horizon team will work with each individual and their planning team based on their specific goals, needs and desires. Support activities are driven by individual choice and promote the skills needed to live as independently as possible within the community, while complimenting the individual in their choice of how they live, work and play.
Horizon’s Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities Services are designed to provide people with an opportunity to learn, be a part of their community, and enhance their quality of life through meaningful daily activities. We serve individuals with disabilities in multiple locations throughout Arizona. The programs we offer include:
Habilitation Group Homes
Habilitation Group Home Services are provided in a home setting, typically shared by three to five people. Everyone has individual goals and receives staff support based on their unique needs. Homes are available for men only, female only and co-ed. Horizon group homes are staffed with direct support staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our staff provides individualized support and assistance to each person based on their individualized needs and goals. Our day programs offer many activities to work and play safely in their communities.
