Spring 2016 Volume 13, Edition 1
If you are looking for an organization that offers people opportunity, yet requires people to commit and invest in one’s self, then NHU is the kind of organization with which you want to be associated.
We vision the guarantee that our communities’ citizens with disabilities have the same opportunities to participate in the mainstream of American life; to enjoy employment opportunities, have the opportunity to purchase goods and services and to participate in local and state programs and services. There are many things we could be doing, now, to ensure a bright future for all of us.
NHU is committed to provide our communities’ members with disabilities the information, tools and experiences that encourage lifelong learning and service, and enable them with the opportunity to be confident, contributing citizens.
We believe that fulfillment can be achieved in many different ways and at every stage of life. As such, we offer a range of opportunities for people to invest in themselves and to keep citizens with disabilities moving forward in their lives. Our communities’ citizens accept the challenge to invest in themselves!
