Tyler Miller of New Horizons (Aired on September 2nd, and September 3rd, 2017)

 New Horizons Resources of Dutchess and Ulster (Aired on September 2
and 3, 2017)
Tyler Miller, a Direct Support Professional with New Horizons Resources, Inc., is interviewed about the New Horizons program for group homes in Dutchess and Ulster counties. New Horizons maintains over thirty homes for older (over age 20) persons with developmental or intellectual disabilities. One or more Direct Service Professionals are present at all times to facilitate the person-centered family-like situations. Residents largely take care of themselves with the assistance of helpers like Tyler Miller. The Direct Support Professionals also aid residents in visiting or working at outside facilities or in participating in such events as the Special Olympics. Mr. Miller became involved in part because his whole family does service of one kind or another, including his mother’s work at Cardinal Hayes Home for Children and brother’s job at the Anderson Center for Autism. Group homes are placed in neighborhoods throughout the community, enabling the residents to participate in community life instead of being shut away in institutions as was formerly common.
