HISTORY

Horizons Specialized Services was created in 1975 to provide services to individuals with developmental disabilities in the five northwest counties of Colorado: Grand, Jackson, Moffat, Rio Blanco and Routt. The administration office for Horizons is located in Steamboat Springs. Residential services to adults are primarily located in Routt and Moffat Counties. In Moffat, Rio Blanco and Routt Counties, services to families and children are both home and center based. In Grand and Jackson Counties, services to families are primarily home based.

 

A developmental disability is one which is attributed to mental retardation, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, or a neurological impairment which originates during the developmental period, can be expected to continue indefinitely and constitutes a substantial handicap.

 

Horizons is a 501©3 tax-exempt, not-for-profit corporation and is one of twenty community-centered boards in the State of Colorado designated by the Division for Developmental Disabilities (DDD) to provide services within a specified catchment area. The relationship is defined through the legislative charge of Title 27, Article 10.5, C.R.S. As one of 20 community-centered boards, Horizons is the single point of entry into state funded services for persons with developmental disabilities with the exception of the public schools.

 

The primary goal of the agency is to provide support to individuals with developmental disabilities to achieve maximum potential within the least restrictive environment. It is also our goal to provide social, physical and recreational programs in integrated settings. Horizons is committed to working closely with other local agencies and professionals in developing resources to best meet the needs of the individuals receiving services and their families.
