• NCFL Providing A Better Future for People with Disabilities

Progress at New Concepts for Living

2017 was a monumental year for us at New Concepts for Living. It was a year that saw us complete and open up 3 brand new, state-of-art group homes. Among the new residences are two in Mahwah, NJ and one in Northvale, NJ making a total of 13 NCFL residences, housing more than 60 clients. In addition to our expansion into new communities and welcoming new clients to the New Concepts for Living family, the new residences will serve as a framework for future NCFL housing development plans, which we hope to announce in the coming year.

Along with upgrades to many of our existing homes, we have also made vast improvements to our day program facility by remodeling, and refurnishing 4 new classrooms with 2 new additional classrooms to be completed this year. We also have plans to outfit our day program with a multi-sensory calming environment.

As we continue our growth, we strive to continue our enduring tradition of providing a lifetime of exceptional care to the individuals entrusted to us. Track our journey and our progress by following us on our social media platforms found at the bottom of this page.
