About Echo Glen Children’s Center
Echo Glen Children’s Center in Snoqualmie is a medium/maximum security facility that is not fenced, but bordered by natural wetlands. It provides treatment services for younger male offenders and is the only institution for female offenders. Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) contracts with Issaquah School District for the education of the residents through high school graduation. DCYF staff provide Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Aggression Replacement Training (ART), cultural programming, sex offense specific treatment, and inpatient chemical dependency treatment. They also offer gender specific programming for female offenders. Female youthful offenders sentenced by the Department of Corrections also reside at Echo Glen and can stay up to 25 years old.
