THANK YOU for partnering with us as we serve individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities! We appreciate the impact you are making!


Horizons works in partnership with families and communities to expand opportunities for individuals with, or at risk of, developmental disabilities.

Our purpose is to enhance the lives of those we help by empowering them to achieve rewarding lives full of new possibilities.

We believe in: the paramount importance of health and safety; a never ending quest for creative solutions; fostering growth and independence; the power of Early Intervention to change lives; compassion and respect for every person and in everything we do.

Background Statement


Horizons was established in 1975 as a community-based alternative to institutionalized care and continues to provide person centered services in the least restrictive environment. Over the past 45 years, Horizons has grown from only home-based services for a handful of children to a wide range of services serving 157 children and youth, 88 adults, and 103 families last fiscal year. Horizons serves the five counties of northwest Colorado: Grand, Jackson, Moffat, Rio Blanco, and Routt.



Early Intervention is for infants and toddlers who have a developmental delay or disability. Services are provided by a Speech Therapist, Occupational Therapist, and a Physical Therapist depending on the child's needs. Early Intervention services are available throughout our entire service area.

Children's Extensive Support (CES) provides Medicaid funded services and supports to families of children under the age of 18 with intellectual or developmental delays or disabilities who have the most intensive behavioral or medical needs and are at high risk for out-of-home placement.


Family Support offers funds to reimburse families for approved expenses associated with the care of their eligible family member, including medical and professional therapies and treatments, respite care, home modifications, insurance deductibles, co-payments, and adaptive equipment.


Comprehensive Residential and Supported Living Services are for eligible adults age 21 and older. We offer an array of residential and supported living services based on each individual's needs.

Vocational Services allow individuals to participate and work within the community for an employer or on a work crew supervised by a Horizons Job Coach.

Day Program promotes computer, math, reading, writing, cooking, and life skills in large and small group settings. Whenever possible, we participate in community activities such as concerts, picnics, hikes, library visits, art classes, physical and recreational programs, etc.
