Testimonials From Clients & Their Families

Our daughter has lived at the Kingston house with New Challenges for 6 years. She has grown in independence and matured emotionally in that time. She is happy and feels safe in her surroundings. Program Director Arianna and Program Coordinator Chrissy have open communication and are always willing to try new ideas to make Heather’s independent lifestyle meaningful.

[NCI] is a great way to be more independent. It has a lot of activities to attend to get involved, and it has wonderful staff services. A great next step for independent living.

Client

New Challenges commits to providing the services the person needs and doesn’t give up if things are not going well. What I like best, in addition to the commitment to the person, is that Leeann appears to have a personal relationship with each service recipient. Leeann’s attitude is reflecting in the staff people treating the service recipients with respect. New Challenges is not just a business, it appears to be Leeann’s life work.

I love the people who work there, and how dedicated they are to their consumers; as a social worker this is exactly what I look for in a company! We are on the cutting edge of all sorts of changes, and I think New Challenges has done an excellent job at staying progressive and applying the person centered approach!

I just wanted to say thank you to all the staff for the all the hard work you do fighting to make all of our lives better. We appreciate the sacrifices that you make in order make sure that we have the things that we need.
To me, personally, coming from where I did, I didn’t have the freedoms that I have now. Freedom like being able to work, to live in a place that I like and be able to be respected and do the things that I want.
Thank you for making things possible for me and others in New Challenges, we really appreciate it
