Discovery Home offers supportive, transitional housing for adolescent boys with the goal of helping low-income and at-risk high school students prepare for the future. Most of the participants in the program have no viable options for family, while others have identified that emancipation provides a more realistic opportunity to achieve success. Discovery Home residents receive support and training in education, employment, life skills, home management, character-building and individualized and group mental health counseling. With support and supervision from trained staff, the young men form a household and share responsibilities. Discovery Home enables them to move toward accepting responsibilities of adulthood – attending and succeeding in school, finding employment, volunteering, enrolling in college or post-secondary training and ultimately becoming self-sufficient. Some clients receive therapeutic support from Denver Children's Home clinicians including experiential therapies like art and music as well as group therapy, mentoring and coaching while others receive services from community mental health, vocational, and/or rehabilitation service providers. Some clients attend Denver Children's Home's onsite therapeutic school, Bansbach Academy, while others attend public or charter schools. All participants work on a personal roadmap for success that encourages them to take the steps they need in order to succeed personally and in future careers.

One of the things I like best about living at Discovery Home is that I get the chance to work and volunteer. It feels good to earn money and to give back to others.
