Stories of Hope
“Devereux really seemed to be the best place for my daughter Annie. It was the best in terms of what the curriculum was including the positive behavior supports that they use and the reinforcements. The environment and the staff is what I was most impressed with. The staff got to know our names—they are very caring. The changes in our life have just been so wonderful, optimistic and hopeful.”
Amy Kelly, Devereux Parent
