Griffith Centers for Children Chins Up Group Home Program stands for a purpose and commitment to creating a structured and therapeutic environment that empowers youth to build healthy relationships, succeed in education, be a productive member of society while developing life skills that will promote their personal identity, growth and self-sufficiency.
In collaboration with experienced and skilled therapists, and well-educated and trained youth treatment counselors, the youth in our group home program benefit from comprehensive and strengths-based treatment plans that are centered on pro-social, safe and healthy decision making.
Griffith Centers for Children Chins Up operates three group homes serving adolescent males:
Independent Living Home
Independent Living Home is designed for up to 8 male youth, ages 17 to 21, who are referred to our program by the Colorado Department of Youth Corrections. Youth in this home receive intensive independent living skill development, i.e. financial management, employment assistance, living a healthy lifestyle, finding resources, etc. Youth treatment counselors are staffed 24/7 to provide appropriate supervision. Additionally, skilled therapists provide individual and family therapy to further support the youth in reaching their goals.
Transitional Skills Program Home
Transitional Skills Program Home is designed for up to 8 male youth, ages 14 to 18, who are referred to our program because they require more intensive services and focus on educational outcomes, as most benefit from Griffith Centers for Children Chins Up Day Treatment Programming. Similar to our Independent Living Home, youth in this home are supported by youth treatment counselors, who are staffed 24/7, and skilled therapists.
Prospect Youth Group Home
Prospect Youth Group Home adheres to SOMB standards and guidelines for the assessment, evaluation, treatment and behavioral monitoring. This group home is designed for up to 8 male youth, ages 14 to 18, who require offense specific treatment. Youth in this home mostly attend public schools. Some, however, benefit from Griffith Centers for Children Chins Up Day Treatment Programming. Treatment counselors and therapists assist youth in building skills to support higher levels of functioning at home and school, and to ensure community safety.
