Smith Agency/Serenity Homes group care for disabled children, consist of 4 homes, staffed 24 hours a day/7 days a week by rotating staff. We have two RCCFs (Residential Child Care Facility) one for boys and one for girls, as well as two Specialized Group Centers licensed for boys. This type of group care provides a residential setting for disabled children that require high levels of structure and routine, often more than intimate family based homes can provide. We strive to teach our kids independence skills to the limits of their individual abilities, to be the most independent that they can be. Children can also get additional therapies within the home setting - Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Language, and behavioral therapy if appropriate.
We provide a continuity of care from childhood through adulthood. We currently have eight Personal Care Alternatives (PCA) adult group homes, six for women and two for men. Our PCA's provide similar structure and support as our children's homes.
All of our residential settings are staffed with experienced people that are familiar with the Disabled population. We provide for all daily needs, activities and school/day programs each week.
