I'd like to hear from anyone who has been at the Villa in Greeley or knows anyone there.
ADAMS COUNTY – 9NEWS has obtained state reports that claim a company running three halfway houses in Colorado is struggling to do its job.
The company, Avalon Correctional Services, helps offenders return to society, instead of prison.
Earlier this year, Colorado's Department of Public Safety produced an audit of The Villa, Avalon's halfway house in Greeley. The audit found a number of problems from untrained employees to poor living conditions to inappropriate sexual relationships between staff and offenders.
The state has subsequently pulled its contract with the facility. The Weld County Community Corrections Board is also considering whether to follow suit.
The Department of Public Safety recently released two more audits of Avalon's two other halfway houses, The Phoenix Center and The Loft House. Both are located in Adams County.
The results are very similar to those found at the Villa. The audits pointed to inadequate training, poor documentation and a high turnover rate among employees.
"Our greatest concern about the Phoenix Center is the facility's pattern of suboptimal performance over time," wrote Carl Blesch, program director with the Office of Community Corrections.
He had similar words for The Loft House.
