Westword reports on the closing of a group of juvenile homes in Boulder County, Colorado. The story finds that Attention Homes, the private nonprofit organization that runs the residential treatment centers, has been successful in dealing with troubled kids, but the county court system gradually stopped referring anyone to it. The report questions the county's philosophy of treating troubled kids in their own homes and sending to juvenile centers only "adolescents with extreme problems."
