Our Next Generation, Qualified Residential Treatment Program, accepts referrals from the Washington State Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF). Upon review, some youth are accepted on an evaluative status and/or for emergency placement. Acceptance of these youth is usually in anticipation of a formal placement for short or long term care.
Upon referring a youth, we ask that the DCYF Program Manager contact the facility, to inquire about present and future openings. At that time Our Next Generation will request that the placement desk provide all necessary information, upon which Our Next Generation Executive Director will make a decision in regards to placement. This will include, but will not be limited to, social history, previous court history, psychological evaluations, and other information pertinent to an intake decision. This information will be reviewed by the team, which will consist of the Director, clinical staff along with the program manager.
