New Concepts for Living
New Concepts for Living is a not-for-profit community based organization dedicated to serving individuals with developmental disabilities.
Founded in 1981 by a group of parents who recognized the need for services as their own special needs children entered adulthood, New Concepts for Living is committed to caring for and enriching the lives of the extraordinary individuals in our care. Currently, we operate 13 community residences, comprised of group homes and supervised apartments. In addition to providing independent, supervised housing options, we offer an adult achievement center day program, behavioral services, nursing and transportation for adults 21 years of age and older.

We have five behaviorists on site and available 24/7.

In addition to their every-day needs, many of our residents have unique medical requirements that need to be addressed to ensure they stay as healthy and active as possible. From blood pressure monitoring and administration of medication, NCFL’s family of extraordinary individuals receive the specific medical supervision and attention they deserve. Each client’s care is monitored closely and regularly by our Nursing team.
