About Horizon Family Solution

We Make No Apologies For Setting High Standards

HorizonFamilySolution.com has been created and upgraded from the original site TroubledTeenHelp.com which was established in 2004.


What We're About

  • No one should have to make excuses to look after their mental health. As the site grows and matures, the intention is to create a community of people who can come together to share experiences and to seek – and find – services and support with easy-to-understand information.
  • HorizonFamilySolution.com is currently located in Colorado and was originally launched in Bend, Oregon in 2004. 
  • The “troubled teen industry” created its hub in Utah in the early 2000s. 
  • We offer options located all across the United States and Internationally. 
  • Doré E. Frances, Ph.D. (she/her/hers) is the founder. As an advocate and educational consultant for 25 years, Doré advocated for families and their children and young adults while collaborating and visiting with programs and schools throughout the United States and Internationally.
  • Doré started the second online directory opportunity in 2004 behind StrugglngTeens.com (which was started in 1995 by Lon Woodbury) in which to bring to families a directory. The rebranding occurred in 2017. 

It's Easy To Join


The intention and mission of HorizonFamilySolution.com have always been to pay it forward

HFS offers a portion of its advertising services on a pro bono basis and creates discounts for those in need. We make it easy for anyone who is interested in helping others to be a part of our growing community. 

HFS also donates throughout the year to charitable causes and Dr. Frances donates her time along with her service dog Aspen as a volunteer within the local community.
