Christie Campus

Youth Villages’ Christie Campus provides residential mental health treatment for boys and girls 6-17 who have serious emotional and behavioral problems.



For almost 50 years, children with serious emotional and behavioral problems have received help at the Christie Campus. The campus became part of Youth Villages in 2011. Utilizing clinically proven treatment approaches, our goal is to return children to their families or other less restrictive settings as quickly as possible.

The Christie Campus’ beautifully landscaped setting is located next to Marylhurst University in Lake Oswego, Ore., and offers boys and girls a peaceful therapeutic environment.
