Adult Life Skills
New Horizon Youth and Family Services began its life skills education to act as another layer in the process of rehabilitation, prevention, and independence. New Horizon offers classes in budgeting and money management, time management and goal setting, employment, and credit building and repair in addition to many more to clients to aid in their success. To increase the chances of success, a Life Skills Coach will work one on one with each client to help them use their new skills to achieve their goals.
“Lisa and Nikki were amazing ladies that helped and taught me so much to better myself as a person & mother. I’m forever grateful for New Horizon as I take another step forward to regaining custody of my child.”Former Life Skills Client

Colorado’s youth are facing many challenges and the need of having an advocate or mentor is growing. At New Horizon Youth and Family Services, our advocates and mentors work with these youth to help them get back on track, provide a positive influence and an education in life skills to assist them in preparation for the adult world. Life shouldn’t be all work and no play, so in addition to working to improve their grades in school and life skills, our youth get the opportunity to go on adventures with their advocate/mentor that include hiking, movies, sports, crafts, volunteering and other activities as rewards for the improvements that they are making.
