We are excited to announce that DCYF’s Naselle Youth Camp recently received the Performance-based Standards (PbS) Barbara Allen-Hagen Award for reducing room confinement on campus. Naselle received this award for their great strides in reducing room confinement and centering on intervention practices that strengthen relationships and improve the quality of life for residents.

In 2019, Green Hill School received the same award for reducing room confinement and eliminating their intensive management unit. Naselle’s room confinement data shows they are below the national field average, marking DCYF as a leader in this work and ensuring agency alignment with Governor Inslee’s goals for young people in our care.

Please join us in recognizing Naselle’s incredible effort to ensure the agency is providing evidence-based, effective forms of rehabilitation so that the youth in our care flourish.
