About the Facility

The Lake Burien Transitional Care Facility will be launched in July and operated by Washington state’s Department of Social and Health Services. We are very grateful for the partnership and collaboration with the Department of Children, Youth and Families and Health Care Authority. DSHS also appreciates MultiCare and Seattle Children’s Hospital for their support. During the 2024 Legislative Session, lawmakers earmarked $12.3 million to support youth who are in crisis who have experienced lengthy stays at emergency rooms without an acute medical need, out-of-state placements, or other temporary places. The facility will be operated by the DSHS Developmental Disabilities Administration.
