Together, we can make a difference in the lives of children

Collaborative Management Program for Youth and their Families in Colorado

Here at Connections for Families in Elbert County and RISE in Lincoln County, we pride ourselves on the quality of service we provide for children that are struggling. We provide support services to families living with children/youth that may be struggling with behavioral, school, mental health or legal issues and tailor the appropriate programs to your individual child/youth and family needs. We firmly believe that there is no better way to help families who need it than to empower them to help themselves, which is why we strive to support families by offering programs that allow families to care for their children in their own homes whenever it's possible to do so. 

Our Vision

Connections for Families and RISE takes a local-level collaborative approach to the delivery of services to children/youth in need of multi-agency services so that the provisions of such services is integrated, appropriate, and increases the capacity of families within our community to provide a healthy environment for children.

When Connections For Families meets with youth and their families for a Service Review Team (SRT) meeting, we ask for feedback. The meeting brings together a team of community service providers and a family with one or more children involved in multiple service systems. Our objective is to help the family identify what would help them to support their child in remaining at home while working their way back to a healthy lifestyle. Our family support services are then administered.

Here are testimonials from customers past:

"I am overwhelmed but hopeful!"

" I appreciate the ideas that were brought up to my son to help plan for somethings he can get involved in this summer."

" Thank you for all your help!"

" Thank you all!"

These testimonials demonstrate the level of customer satisfaction that we aim for. 
Happy family after best family support services in Colorado
