The original incarnation of New Horizons Medical Institute, Inc., was started sixteen years ago in 1990 when Ms. Rose Tabi Ndamukong, was associated with a training program for hard-to-employ individuals at the New York Department of Social Services. As a result of her association with this and other programs, Ms. Tabi decided to establish a permanent job training and counseling center where these Individuals and their sponsors/counselors could meet and receive “hands-on” job training (in well paying jobs), counseling, share life experiences, communicate and experience growth and fellowship while devoting themselves to coming out of poverty, being drug free and establishing a profession.
