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.
