On Oct. 9, Encompass received a grant of $10,000 from the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe to support the Encompass Mobile Therapy Unit, a 24-foot van outfitted to bring high-tech pediatric and family therapy to underserved areas. The unit is the first of its kind in the state of Washington.

The mobile therapy unit contains a Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) lab with a walled-off play area, a one-way mirror, and a therapist station with computer and audiovisual equipment. The lab doubles as a therapy office to provide mental health, speech, and other therapy.

The van was unveiled at the Encompass Rise & Thrive Breakfast in April and started seeing clients in September.
