Adolescent and Youth Services

We provide services and support to adolescent victims of maltreatment, and those who are at risk for maltreatment if protective measures are not taken, as well as their families. Additionally, we help the families of adolescents who are beyond the control of their parent(s), including juvenile delinquents. We help youth and adolescents with issues such as histories of abuse and/or neglect, substance abuse, delinquency, truancy, a mental health diagnosis, and, homelessness.

We provide a range of services and support to adolescents and their families, with specialties in diversion programs, intensive family treatment, addressing juvenile delinquency, and providing independent living and emancipation skills. By providing in-home family services and advocacy, we make every attempt to keep youth with their families. When a youth’s or family’s situation makes living in the home impossible, we explore other options such as foster care and residential treatment.

The youth and families we work with are often involved in other systems, such as the Denver Juvenile Probation Department, the Denver Juvenile Court, the mental health system, and the Denver Public School system.  Whenever possible, we work with professionals in these other systems to develop an integrated treatment plan that will benefit the youth.
