Our Residential Children’s Academy (ORCA) is a Qualified Residential Treatment Program (QRTP) located in Wenatchee, WA.
This facility is a licensed residential group home, that contracts with the Washington State Department of Children, Youth & Families (DCYF). ORCA is equipped to house 12 DCYF dependent female youth, ages 7-16, that need a higher level of care.
Case managers and direct care staff work to implement the best practices in treatment programs. Setting behavioral improvement goals in social skills, emotional regulation, and education for each resident.
Once treatment goals have been resolved, our youth will be ready to transition to a less restrictive setting such as a relative placement or a foster home. ORCA’s goal is to provide therapeutic interventions that will support youth to be placed in a less restrictive setting within 6-9 months.
Our team collaborates with community providers so that the youth can receive the best care for their individual needs. Community partners offer an array of support such as mental health services and community
“We believe that together, as a team and community, we can change the lives of at-risk foster youth for lifelong success.”
