CBR YouthConnect

Founded in 1959 and formerly known as Colorado Boys Ranch, CBR YouthConnect (CBRYC) is a national residential treatment facility that provides accredited mental health services and education to at-risk boys, ages 10 to 21, from across the United States. Located on 340 acres in Southeast Colorado, near the rural town of La Junta, CBRYC serves youth who have coexisting psychiatric, behavioral and educational problems that prevent them from successfully functioning in their homes, schools and communities.

CBRYC’s mission is to achieve excellence in providing troubled youth with the means to become hopeful and productive citizens.

To accomplish this mission, CBRYC integrates educational and therapeutic activities within a nurturing environment to help guide boys toward responsible and successful adulthood. By building relationships with the youth, staff members encourage them to explore their interests and abilities and to sustain positive changes in their feelings, attitudes and behaviors. In addition to academic classes, vocational education, animal-assisted therapy, and individual and family counseling, residents also benefit from the rural location, community support, and strong emphasis on post-discharge care.
