Fircrest School is a residential center located on
85 acres of wooded and open spaces, within the
city of Shoreline, Washington.
Why is it important to have Fircrest as part of a continuum of care?
“We are very happy with and grateful for Fircrest. It was a lifesaver and a wonderful place for our daughter. For the first time in her life she can say she has friends. She has wonderful activities that would have been impossible for us to provide on our own or for her to access through living in a group home.
And last but not least, due to her complex and sometimes impulsive and dangerous behavior, with her living at Fircrest we can now sleep at night knowing that she is safe.”
...Parent of Fircrest resident.
Admission to Fircrest School is coordinated through DDA Region 2 Field Services staff. More admission information here.
