Building Our Vision for the Future
Since the 1980’s, thousands of low income children and adults have received treatment from Navos doctors and therapists at our current Burien location. Navos’ commitment to providing compassionate and evidence based care for children and adults with emotional and mental illness has been a shaping force in the mental health field. Our current facility in South King County, in a converted elementary school, has been displaced by the operation of the new third runway at Sea Tac International Airport. When we realized we would have to move, we focused our planning efforts on finding a site with convenient access for our low income clients. After locating the new site at 136th and Ambaum in Burien, we designed a building that would fully integrate therapy, primary healthcare treatment, employment training and support services, which when provided together, have proven to be the most effective solution in supporting Recovery and reintegration for people living with mental illness.
Now more than ever we need a facility that can provide services for the complex and layered needs of people with serious and persistent mental illness. The new Mental Health and Wellness Center in Burien will provide 45,000 square feet for specialized services on three floors. Site work and construction has started, and the center will be completed in phases over the next two years. This new space, specially designed for our clients’ needs, will increase our serving capacity by 20%. More importantly it will allow us to successfully integrate the support, primary healthcare and therapy services we provide so our clients can live better sooner.
The 13.5 million dollar campaign for the Mental Health and Wellness Center is underway. These funds will come from many sources, including organizational funds, public funds, financing, and New Market Tax Credits, and 3 million private dollars. We invite you to learn more.
