New View Society was established in August 1973 in response to the de-institutionalization of patients from Riverview Psychiatric Hospital. Many previous Riverview patients were now living in the community and needed social, recreational or work programs to assist them with community integration. New View Society was formed to meet that need. For more information about how we have grown over the years, please visit the New View’s History page.
