NEW DIRECTIONS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES INC
September 27, 2012

My brother Rich has been a traveler with New Directions every year for the past 10 years. New Directions is a wonderfully caring, highly professional organization that really "lives" it's mission to provide great journeys for their travelers AND helps others see how much people with developmental disabilities can teach the rest of us about life, joy and laughter. Every traveler is treated with dignity, respect, love and consideration.

NEW DIRECTIONS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES INC
November 20, 2010

My brother is developmentally disabled and has been on several trips with New Directions. Ten years ago after my parents passed away I was determined to help my brother live a more independent and self-fulfilling life. His experiences with New Directions Travel has been an integral part in his growth in independence, self confidence and overall excitement about life. In the beginning I had to cajole him into going on a trip. Now he has the next one selected before he goes on the one selected for the current year. I asked him recently what he likes best about New Directions staff and programs (aside from the wonderful places he gets to go). He said that the trips are so well organized and that the staff is so helpful--especially in the morning when it takes him a long time to get ready for the day. I'm forever grateful to this organization for all that they do.

The Great!
