RADIUS Residential Youth Treatment Facility

A Healing Environment

The RADIUS Residential Youth Treatment Facility provides a transformative environment for vulnerable youth in Omaha. The 43,000-square-foot facility is a chrysalis, representing a transition in the lives of Omaha’s vulnerable youth. While the building itself is the physical manifestation of this transition, the meaningful interaction that occurs within activates the transformation.

Empowerment Through Design

The facility features an open design which allows each resident to engage in activities and interactions at their own pace. The site itself is transformative with rejuvenating landscapes and empowering experiences. As youths connect with nature, anxiety and stress fade away. It is transparent yet private, open yet secure, non-restrictive yet safe, and experiential yet efficient.

  • The facility’s design includes classrooms for education, gymnasium, and exterior recreation area. 
  • Small exterior patio areas are designed with direct access from each housing unit to provide youth access to fresh air and sunlight. 
  • Staff positions improve line of site, allowing enhanced freedom of movement by youth outside the housing units.
  • The outpatient clinic provides professional mental/behavioral health assessment and treatment for youth and families.

Promoting Positive Transformation

The facility creates the ideal environment for vulnerable youth through its welcoming layout, access to nature, and emphasis on resident autonomy.
