Contact: Elliot A. Sainer, Aspen CEO

September 1, 1998 – (Cerritos, California) Aspen Youth Services (AYS) announced today the purchase of NorthStar Center in Bend, Oregon. The NorthStar Center is an independent living program designed for young adults, 18 to 25, who are looking to achieve independence and control over their lives by offering a challenging year long personal growth program. The NorthStar Center has been serving the needs of these young adults and their families since 1991 under the leadership of Dennis and Jeannie Crowell, and currently has 33 students in the program. Dennis Crowell will stay on as Director of the program. 

“We are very pleased to have this high quality program join our group of services for at-risk youth,” said Elliot A. Sainer, President and CEO of Aspen Youth Services. “NorthStar has a national reputation and referral base for helping young adults assume responsibility for their lives, and we are excited to have this type of transition program available for many of our adolescents who graduate from some of our other programs.”

“As the NorthStar Center continues with its mission of providing healthy independence for young adults, I am very pleased to be associated with Aspen Youth Services,” said Dennis Crowell, Director and Founder of NorthStar. “With their diverse level of quality services for youth, I believe we will be better able to serve our clientele. I am very excited about the future of NorthStar and look forward to a successful long term relationship.”

Aspen Youth Services provides education, treatment, and rehabilitation services to at-risk youth and their families. AYS currently operates and has under development 34 programs in eight states.
