Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Many factors contribute to the challenges faced today by our at-risk youth population. This includes above average poverty rates, high percentages of single parent households, increasing numbers of families on government assistance programs, food and housing insecurity, zero tolerance policies in schools and marijuana legalization. Adolescence is a significant time of change in a young person's life. The brain is still maturing and the developmental process is commonly accompanied by some experiential substance abuse or impulsive behavior. These behaviors can become severe and create substance abuse and behavioral health issues that cause relational conflict and academic failure. Our model is intended to prevent further involvement of youth in the justice system by integrating alternative programming, there fore decreasing juvenile delinquency in Larimer County. We are addressing the needs of the youth though our comprehensive program to bring about second chance opportunities.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are:

1.) Increasing the number of teens staying in school and making healthier lifestyle decisions.

2.) Strengthening participant families, improving communication and parenting skills.


3.) Increasing academic success for our youth in Larimer County school Districts.


4.) Increasing services for low income families.

Strategies:

1.) Increase the number of youth by 10% every year by implementing awareness campaigns and intervention issues, behavioral health and drug and alcohol substance abuse and family conflict.

2.) Develop a five-year sustainability plan to attract and retain qualified paid staff and volunteers for all services and activities.


3.) Maintain and enhance collaborations by 15% and relationships with businesses, agencies and funders which will benefit our youth and our families.

4.) Acquire stable, community based financial and in-kind resources to support programs and growth envisioned by a three-year strategic plan to be completed by the end of 2020.

5.) Increase private donor revenue and broadly diversify our funding base by 25% so we are less dependent on grants.

The Center was founded in 2000 by Laurie Klith who was the original Executive Director and still serves in that role. The Board of Directors is very dedicated and committed and represents law enforcement and business leaders and school administrators who all share the same vision for the Center. The Center has fostered community support through partnerships with :

1.) 8th Judicial Juvenile Court
2.) Poudre School District
3,) Realities for Children
4.) Larimer County Interagency Oversight Group
5.) United Way
6.) Division of Criminal Justice
7.) Larimer Probation Department
8.) Colorado State University

The Center offers levels of programming as a complex, multi modal intervention, designed to keep delinquent youth in our community and to defer children away from the juvenile justice system.

The Center serves approximately 500 children a year and has served over 25,000 families and youth since its inception in 2000. The Center will be expanding its services to provide a crisis intervention specialist to serve families during non business hours such as weekends and late evenings.

The Center is also expanding the service learning program to serve families in Loveland , Colorado.
