I provide services for at-/high-risk youth/young adults and their families which are typically involved in Colorado’s juvenile justice system. I am in this line of work because who I serve are some of the most talented and full of potential youth/young adults who at times need a better sense of direction to live out their dreams and use their god-given talents/abilities.
