For over 20 years, we have been a dedicated supporter of the New Horizons
Center for the Developmentally Disabled. This Center, located for many years, in
old staff housing for the Dunning complex, provides important educational and
training services for severely disabled youth and adults.

Today, New Horizons realized the first stage of its dream of having a modern,
state of the art facility for its students. This facility will be located just
west of our bakery so we are truly connected as well as jointly being part of
the Wright Campus.
