Services Offered to Residents

At J Street, we are excited to work in collaboration with the ‘Kids At Hope’ philosophy, by implementing  evidenced based, strategic cultural model that reverses the belief of “youth being at risk” to “youth being at hope” paradigm. We believe that by establishing a holistic methodology that engages the family, school and community with appropriate therapeutic interventions, we can help support the success of all children and youth, without exception.

While residing at J Street youth can expect to participate in the following:

  • Education in a classroom setting that meets their individual needs or prepares them  for the workforce
  • Weekly therapeutic sessions with our in-house therapist
  • Therapeutic groups five days a week
  • Essential skill building groups
  • Social activities

J Street has a diverse team of staff from different cultural backgrounds with a variety of skills and experiences that meet the needs of the population of youth we serve and programs are designed to serve youth and their families in a safe and caring therapeutic learning environment.

Located in the Hilltop neighborhood of Tacoma, Pioneer Youth Center - J Street provides Behavior Rehabilitation Services (BRS) for up to 16 youth, both male and female, 13-17 years of age who have experienced abuse or neglect, or have had an unsuccessful transition in the foster care system. The program is under contract with Children’s Administration and provides BRS, a temporary intensive wraparound support and treatment program, for youth with extremely high-level service needs. The services are used to safely stabilize youth and assist in achieving a permanent residence plan or a less intensive service. 

The desired outcomes for BRS services is to increase the child’s behavioral, school and and placement stability, and increase potential to reach permanency. A major focus is to develop necessary supports, which would allow the child to maintain or develop a permanent family connection and to reside in his/her own community in an identified permanent resource. A wide array of services can be provided under a BRS contract, ranging from short-term emergent care to a longer term that includes ongoing community services.

Recreational Opportunities

All youth residing at J Street will obtain a membership with the YMCA for physical recreation, and the People’s Community Center and the Public Library for social and learning programs.

Eligibility

All youth are referred into the J Street program by Children's Administration.

Whatcom Community Detox provides a monitored setting for the safe withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs. The detoxification is provided in a sub-acute (non-medical) unit where intensive medical monitoring is not required. In addition to stabilization and safety, the goal of these services is to assess people’s mental health and substance use disorder-related needs and help them access the services they need to recover.

Medication Assisted  Treatment Program – Working with Whatcom County, Pioneer is offering individuals addicted to opiates a tapering program, or induction for maintenance, for use at inpatient treatment and in the community based on successful completion of treatment. The Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program was created to help individuals with a safe and more comfortable withdrawal and keep them engaged in the recovery process. The goal is to assist people addicted to opiates in getting back to a healthy lifestyle. The MAT program has case managers and utilizes a physician who prescribes Suboxone for a smooth transition so clients can move easier into a treatment program.
