Rimrock Trails using grants for adolescent residential treatment classroom

Rimrock Trails Treatment Services

PRINEVILLE, Ore. (KTVZ) -- Rimrock Trails Treatment Services is beyond grateful to receive $1,000 in grant funds from the Roundhouse Foundation and an additional $1,500 from OnPoint Community Credit Union to purchase necessary sensory sensitive furniture, equipment, and supplies for the classroom in the adolescent residential treatment program.

Many of the teens in our residential treatment program suffer from anxiety disorders, depression, and have special learning needs. They often struggle with sensory overwhelm daily and if this is not addressed, it can lead to an inability to learn. Like the Roundhouse Foundation and OnPoint Community Credit Union, Rimrock Trails understands that investing in education is one of the best ways to build thriving communities. Funding from these two amazing organizations allows us to create a sensory sensitive infrastructure so that the teens in our program can flourish and thrive in the classroom.” Michelle Duff, Rimrock Trails Treatment Services, Community Relations Manager

The Rimrock Trail’s adolescent residential treatment campus provides a safe and supportive therapeutic environment conducive to learning, empowerment, and change. They operate a learning and educational center for school credit recovery, provide trauma-informed therapy, and offer enrichment activities such as health and wellness classes, craft and art programs, and outdoor adventures. The school credit recovery educational program is essential to the success of the teens in the treatment process and is mandated for residential treatment programs by the State of Oregon.
