About Downeast Horizons

Downeast Horizons assists and supports individuals with developmental disabilities to live complete and fulfilling lives.

Downeast Horizons is committed to:

  • Providing the necessary supports for each individual to participate in the community in which he or she lives, in a way that satisfies and enriches both the individual and the community;
  • Facilitating caring and satisfying relationships for each individual we assist;
  • Listening and responding to feedback from the individuals we assist, their families, and the community;
  • Respecting the dignity and individuality of every person with disabilities that we support;
  • Providing access to experience that provides each individual with opportunities for choice and growth as appropriate; and
  • Supporting individuals with disabilities through advocacy and education efforts with families, in the legislature, and in the community

We are guided by our belief that being included in community life provides enhanced opportunities, a broader network of support, and meaning to the lives of the people we assist.

All agency-sponsored activities are paid for by Downeast Horizons.
