Youth Programs

Children and adolescents who have witnessed or experienced abuse, family violence, or sexual assault may benefit from counseling services. ATV currently offers counseling services for children and their families if they are a current resident of our Safehouse. However, community partners in Northern Colorado provide access to professionals to help children identified as victims. Some of these resources offer services on a sliding scale or accept Medicaid.

  • ChildSafe, Fort Collins: Provides individual, family and group therapy to child and adolescent victims of child abuse and family member in child sexual abuse cases. (970) 493-3833
  • Summitstone Health Partners, Fort Collins: Provides counseling for psychological, emotional, and behavioral problems, domestic violence and sexual assault victims, and drug and alcohol problems. Individual, family and group therapy are available. (970) 494-4200 
  • Heart-Centered Counseling, Loveland: Whether you’re dealing with depression or anxiety, marital issues, or strife in your family, the therapists at Heart Centered Counseling are ready and able to help. (970) 310-3406

Outreach Presentations

Education-based presentations are available to any school, community, or professional group. Presentations are designed to educate the public on topics related to domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking in order to provide education and resources for these situations that affect our community.
Topics include:

  • Dating Violence
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Sexual Assault Prevention
  • Personal Safety
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Anger Management
  • Domestic Violence

Why is all this important?

  • In homes where there is domestic violence, child abuse is 15 times more likely to occur than in non-violent homes.
  • Studies estimate that the number of children at risk for exposure to family violence is about 3.3 million.
  • Children who witness abuse to a parent display the same symptoms, including post traumatic stress, as children who are actually abused.
  • Children who are abused or witness abuse may exhibit behavioral and emotional disturbances that range from withdrawal, low self-esteem, nightmares, self-blame, aggression against peers and family members, and property destruction.
  • A history of family violence or abuse is the most significant difference between delinquent and non-delinquent youth.
