Pearl Street Center

Children's Long-Term Inpatient Program


The Pearl Street Center, accredited by the Joint Commission, provides residential treatment to Washington State youth with significant psychiatric impairment.  Pearl opened in 1985 and each year serves 20-25 boys and girls, ages 12-17, with most youth staying six to twelve months. 

The primary goals of the program are to:

  • Stabilize in a safe, secure and highly structured living environment
  • Improve ability to develop and maintain healthy social relationships
  • Build effective community living skills
  • Build productive life skills
  • Develop coping skills and adaptive functioning
  • Develop self-care habits that promote good health
  • Focus on reintegration back into a community setting, as quickly as possible

Pearl services are accessed through application and approval by the local Behavioral Health Organization and Washington State Children’s Long-term Inpatient Program (CLIP) Administration.
