Griffith Centers (GC) is in a unique position to help individuals with developmental disabilities. GC has an almost 100-year history of working with youth and families in Colorado. GC also knows and understands that youth who are placed in our residential childcare facilities and our foster care youth are either adopted, returned to family, or emancipated out of the system. Sadly, teenagers who have developmental disabilities are harder to stabilize with their biological families as they do not know how to meet their needs and they are harder to place in adoptive homes.
GC wants to help these youth transition into adulthood without disrupting everything that is familiar to them. GC’s goal is to collaborate between GC’s programs and other available services to help the youth with developmental disabilities find the best host home placement to meet their needs. GC believes there are no other agencies in the county that offers this type of service. GC will also help others who need placement in a host home or PCA setting.
GC offers culinary classes to those members having an interest in cooking.
