Triumph Receives Local, State, and Federal Awards
Volunteers from Junior League of Yakima plant flowers at Inspirations
Early in 2023, the James Oldham Treatment Center (JOTC) received a federal Community Project Funding award of $1,400,728, awarded through Rep. Dan Newhouse’s office. Triumph also received $500,000 from Yakima County’s America Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) recovery funds. The ARPA funds are managed by the Board of Yakima County Commissioners. JOTC is an intensive inpatient facility for men, one of the largest in the state. It provides clients with co-occurring substance use disorder and mental-health treatment. The average length of stay is 28 to 30 days. The building, located in Buena, WA, is nearly 100 years hold, and serves men from all 39 counties in the state. These awards will allow Triumph to begin long-needed maintenance work at the JOTC, including a new roof, bathrooms, and other updates to the facility so we can better serve our clients.
Triumph received word at the end of the recent legislative session that $11.75 million was awarded to the Inspirations facility so that we can double the number beds and people served, for co-occurring substance use disorder and mental health treatment. Inspirations, like the James Oldham center, is an intensive inpatient facility for women with an average length of stay of 28 to 30 days. With only 16 beds, the wait list is often up to three weeks long while serving clients from around the state. Expansion Phase 1 will double beds from 16 to 32. Triumph is incredibly grateful for the partnership of our 14th District legislators, including Sen. Curtis King, Rep. Gina Mosbrucker, and Rep. Chris Corry, who collectively advocated for this project to be included in the State’s 2023-2025 budget. Phase 1 is part of a larger Inspirations project that, once fully funded, will expand the facility to include 48 total co-occurring substance use disorder treatment beds
