“Before being introduced to Independent Horizons, my family struggled to find a disability service provider in Nebraska that was truly committed to ensuring my brother was seen and treated as the unique and wonderful individual that he is, instead of just his disability. The Independent Horizons team is compassionate, hardworking, and is always dedicated to helping every individual achieve their goals and get the most out of life.”
