The Dale House Project

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: July 30, 2012, 3:54 PM

Description

Dale House reaches out to delinquent, neglected, and abused teenagers who cannot return home. Within the context of community living, our goal is to teach these youth the skills necessary to live independently.

Four residences in Colorado Springs, Colorado, make up the Project. But more than buildings, it is a Christian community of staff and residents committed to being together for meals, one-to-one talks, group counseling, work crews, recreation, and outings, such as ski trips and camping.

Dale House opened in 1972 as a special project with Young Life, a parachurch outreach to youth, in response to the alarming nation-wide proliferation of broken homes, child abuse, teenage pregnancy, incest, and drug and alcohol abuse. The Dale House Project now operates as a separate 501(c)(3) corporation.

Each year Dale House takes in hundreds of troubled young people. Most are referred by the Department of Human Services or the Division of Youth Corrections. Though we are licensed to keep children ages 16-21, most of our residents are 17 years old. The average length of stay is six to nine months. We occasionally take referrals from families or friends. Funding for the Project comes from government agencies who place children at Dale House and contributions from churches, civic organizations, and individuals.
