The Horizon House programs have the capacity to provide placement and interventions services to twelve youth at two different sites that are gender specific. Primarily the Horizon House programs are available to DCF eligible youth from ten (10) to eighteen (18) years of age, and their families. Youth may present with a variety of special medical, physical, and/or emotional needs and a range of symptomatic behaviors. The need for placement may be in response to crisis or other stressors, to alleviate immediate risk of harm, as a transitional "step-down" from another level of care or as planned respite. DCF through the process of a family team meeting will determine the youth's appropriateness for this community based level or care.
