Dan Golden, Director of the Klamath County Youth Inspiration Program, is creating a new gender- responsive residential behavioral health facility in Klamath Falls, Oregon. The proposed Klamath YIP facility will combine natural design elements with green energy inputs to provide a new model of residential care and educational opportunity for teenage girls placed in YIP by state agencies. 

Founded in 2014, Klamath YIP combines intensive trauma-informed behavioral health care for clients with substance abuse treatment and enhanced educational opportunities. The goal of Klamath YIP is to motivate and empower teenage female clients to build new lives for themselves through intensive trauma-informed behavioral health care and educational opportunity so they can flourish in community settings instead of being confined in correctional institutions.

All YIP clients, program staff, case managers, and mental health professionals are female. The behavioral program was designed specifically for female teenage clients. The design of the new facility will maximize natural elements with recreational space for clients, abundant sunlight, indoor and outdoor gardens, natural rock and wood surfaces, water features, art displays, and an educational unit providing science and tech labs, art and music studios, classroom/library, and vocational training space.

The facility will be heated with on-site geothermal energy and supplied with solar energy to reduce the energy footprint. While partially supported by state funds, the new facility concept needs substantial private support to be fully developed. Once completed, the new Klamath YIP facility will provide a model behavioral health residential treatment facility for gender-responsive trauma-informed care and educational opportunity.
