DYS regional offices and administration

office and admin header

Regional offices

There are four regional offices within the Division of Youth Services that span across 64 counties and work in partnership with 22 judicial districts.

Regional offices are responsible for:

  • The development of local resources to meet the needs of youth and families as they transition from residential treatment back to their communities.
  • Oversight of the region's client management and parole systems,
  • Liaison and collaboration with local juvenile justice and human services agencies,
  • Representing the Division on local Collaborative Management (HB 04-1451) Projects, and
  • Collaboration and coordination with local judicial districts to administer the Colorado Youth Detention Continuum detention services programs.

In addition, regional offices negotiate contracts with residential and non-residential treatment providers, and monitor those programs for contract compliance and compliance with division policy and procedure.

Client management

Client Management is an overarching case management system for youth who are committed to the custody of the Department of Human Services, Division of Youth Services. The Client Management system functions to:

  • Partner with families to ensure there is a family voice in decision making processes,
  • Guide youth through the commitment continuum from assessment through parole,
  • Develop treatment and supervision plans for each committed youth,
  • Monitor the youth progress in treatment through regular contact with program staff,
  • Present the youth's community treatment plan to the Community Review Board when community-based programming is prescribed,
  • Prepare the Parole Plan and present the plan with the youth before the Juvenile Parole Board,
  • Procure transition and parole services for youth upon community transition,
  • Supervise and monitor each youth's progress while on parole, and,
  • Advocate for the needs of the youth in their care.
Transition and parole services

Residential and non-residential service providers provide support and supervision to youth as they transition out of DYC care and back to their families and communities. Services include Multi-Systemic Therapy, Functional Family Therapy, individual and family therapy, substance abuse counseling, tracking, mentoring, offense-specific therapy, independent living skills, anger management skills, parenting skills training and links to sustainable community resources. Client Managers within each region oversee these services and are responsible for ensuring that the needs of each youth are met and that community safety is maintained.
