Our Goal

Nurture & Care For Children

Serenity’s goal is to provide treatment and resources to ensure that the child is ultimately placed in a safe, secure environment.

To measure our success:
Our agency goals are set, measured and evaluated by the executive staff, conjointly with the Board of Directors, which meets at least quarterly. A database system is used as a quantitative measurement of the program; the qualitative success is determined by the fulfillment of the individual treatment goals for each program participant.

Although family reunification is the primary focus, Serenity supports the concurrent plan philosophy:

“Should reunification efforts fail, a secondary permanent home meeting the child’s needs must be concurrently planned”.
