Kerry Ann Goldsmith recognized by the Association of Children’s Residential Centers
Kerry Ann Goldsmith, executive director of Devereux Massachusetts and Rhode Island, was recently honored with the prestigious “Fellow” award by the Association of Children’s Residential Centers (ACRC).
Goldsmith received the award during ACRC’s annual conference in Boston for her “dedicated service and leadership within the ACRC and for her extraordinary contribution to the treatment of children in care.”
“I was surprised and humbled,” said Goldsmith. “I am so grateful to be involved with such an incredible association, and to have connections with intelligent, thoughtful colleagues from around the world who have the same passion for our work. It truly takes a village to be a leader in the residential treatment facility world, and I share this award with our direct care staff who work every day to change and inspire young lives.”
In her role at Devereux Massachusetts and Rhode Island, Goldsmith oversees the day-to-day operational, clinical and administrative functions of the center, which provides individualized treatment for children, adolescents and young adults with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences, including autism spectrum disorders.
The ACRC’s mission is to provide a voice for residential interventions through relationships, leadership, advocacy, and the promotion of innovative treatment and best practices. The nonprofit strives to be a resource to member organizations and agencies working to provide effective and transformative care to vulnerable children, youth and families.
Goldsmith has been involved with the ACRC since 2011. Since that time, she has served as board advisor, board director-at-large, board director and executive committee member.
