The Family Visitor Program provides staff members to complete in-home visits with families identified by Larimer County Department of Human Services (LCDHS). Families are identified as a result of a report being made to their agency by a concerned community member regarding their child. The visitor’s role is to discuss areas of need for the family, briefly meet children included in reports to assure they are safe, address reported concerns, and offer community resources. Family Visitors are expected to be kind, non-judgmental, and helpful. The visitor then submits a report of the visit to LCDHS.
The Remington House Day Treatment Program is a school program that serves families of dependent and neglected, delinquent, and voluntary youth. The program involves a mixed milieu of males and females, who are of the age of 10-18 years old. The program is offered full day and year round, including summer sessions. School runs from 7:30am to 3:00pm Monday through Friday. Students in the Day Treatment program participate in 6 classes per day including Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Vocational and Physical Education.
The day treatment students are also required to attend group therapy after school from 3:45 to 4:45. Day treatment clients are encouraged to participate in individual, group, and family therapy as part of their discharge plan. The education and academic services include assessing and developing Individual Education Plans (IEP) and Individual Learning Plans (ILP) for each of the students, and helping students to complete credit hours towards a diploma or GED. Daily transportation is provided, within specified boundaries, by trained staff members to and from The Remington House. The students also participate in vocational classes, including being active participants in The Growing Project (a community gardening project).

The Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program was developed to meet the needs of youth who benefit from increased supervision, structured peer interactions, and continued therapeutic support in order to maintain placement within the community. IOP clients spend scheduled time at Remington House in a staff-secure setting. They are encouraged to arrive after school and join group therapy sessions from 3:45-4:45. They then participate with the rest of the milieu in various structured activities, recreation, homework time, and dinner. It is requested that IOP clients have transportation arranged to and from The Remington House. IOP clients are at the Remington House anywhere from 2-5 times per week, usually in the afternoons, and occasionally on weekends.
If you have questions about the IOP program, please contact Erin Spies, Assistant Director, or, Barb Montoya, Clinical Director, at (970) 484-7447.
