Subject: Save the Date - Groundbreaking the Southern YRTC - July 31

Dear Tribal Officials,

The Indian Health Service, California Area Office (IHS/CAO) is pleased to announce the completion of the design for the southern California Youth Regional Treatment Center (YRTC) in Riverside County.  The IHS/CAO has received the funding to begin construction, which allows the IHS/CAO to initiate a source selection for construction of the YRTC.  The IHS/CAO expects to be able to begin construction in the fall, with a target date of September/October 2014.

The IHS/CAO is planning a Groundbreaking Ceremony for the morning of July 31, 2014.  This is scheduled to coincide with the California Area Tribal Advisory Committee meeting tentatively scheduled for July 30.  Please mark your calendars and “SAVE THE DATE” for this very special and long-awaited event.  More specific details will be coming in the next few weeks.

I look forward with excitement as we begin the actual development of this first YRTC in California.

Margo D. Kerrigan, M.P.H.
