Thank you to everyone who helped to make our 2018 NCFL Walk-a-Thon the most successful one that we have ever had. Residents and their families, our friends, and our sponsors helped to make this year's walk a very special day.

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.

Big News from Our Friends at The Ridgewood YMCA
The Ridgewood YMCA has served the community since 1902 and today engages over 15,000 adults and children annually from their Oak Street location in Ridgewood and year round YMCA Camp Bernie resident camp in Port Murray, NJ. The YMCA embraces people of all ages, incomes, abilities, religions, and ethnic backgrounds.
As we have a special relationship with the Ridgewood YMCA, it is our pleasure to share the news that the YMCA will restructure as a separate entity from the YWCA, whose organization has shared the Oak Street home for over 70 years. The YMCA will operate solely in the facility, providing a great foundation for improvement and growth opportunities including facility upgrades, increased collaboration with local organizations, and innovative programming for youth, families, and active older adults.
To learn more about the transformation, and the programs offered by the Ridgewood YMCA, you can visit their website at www.ridgewoodymca.org.
