Navos showed off the new Behavioral Healthcare Center for Children, Youth & Families being constructed on its Lake Burien campus, which is scheduled to open Oct. 23.
“Through this project, we will integrate and expand services for vulnerable youth and families by bringing together programs provided by Navos and our partners, the Ruth Dykeman Children’s Center and Seattle Children’s Home,” they said in a statement.
The center will provide programs for young children, school-aged youth, teens, young adults and families in South King County, and create a safe, therapeutic environment where children who have suffered abuse, neglect and other significant traumas receive the treatment and support they need to heal.
The 7.5-acre campus will include space for outpatient programs for youth and families, housing and support services for young adults transitioning from foster care to independence, inpatient and residential treatment programs for children and teens, a primary care clinic, a school for youth in residential treatment, outdoor recreation areas, space for other youth service providers, and studios for adjunctive therapies including art, dance and music.
“The natural setting on Lake Burien and a comprehensive continuum of services will provide a protected sanctuary for healing and hope,” they added.
