In 2004, inspired by a mother's need to provide a safe,
meaningful, fulfilling life for her disabled son, a group of community
leaders from Montgomery County, Texas joined with her to establish Texas
New Community Alliance (TNCA), a 501(c)3 charitable and educational
organization. At the cornerstone of TNCA was the vision for a
self-sustaining, master planned, integrated community where adults with
intellectual and developmental disabilities ("IDD") could Live, Learn,
Work, and Grow emotionally, socially, and spiritually with their
non-disabled peers. That vision has become a reality with the
development of New Danville.
Today, New Danville serves over 500 adults a week. Known as
"wranglers" and "mavericks", these men and women participate in a
variety of activities in a pastoral setting at New Danville's Life
Learning Center, an adult education and training center. Education and
training activities are developed by talented and devoted staff,
supported by caring volunteers that enrich the mind, the body and the
spirit of each man and woman who participate during this weekday
program. In addition to the day program activities, some wranglers have
the ability to live independently, and chose to live in Meadowbrook, New
Danville's first residential neighborhood.
Everything New Danville does is designed to develop a strong
work ethic, real life skills, and helps to develop independence,
confidence and social skills for the real world.
