News From Devereux Florida Viera Campus
Good day from the Devereux Florida Viera Campus! I am the Administrator here at the campus and wanted to take the opportunity to share some exciting news with you. For those of you I have yet to meet, I began my career with Devereux here at the campus in 1988 as a direct care staff. Over the years Devereux has given me many opportunities, including earning my Masters degree in Psychology, as well as my national Board Certification as a Behavior Analyst.

My Life A Poem by a Devereux Child
I’m living the life
No matter what I do.
Everyone around me thinks so to.
Can’t you see everything?
That has happened to me.
Making wrong choices and
Hearing evil voices.
Why this life?
Why all this strife?
Why all these rules?
Why all these laws?
People make me think and pause.
I could be good.
I could be smart.
Why can’t I be me and have a new start?
Why my life?
Why this way?
Why do I have to be alive to this day?
I hated myself now I love me.
Thank God for that.
Thanks God for setting me free.
I’m now in Devereux
Doing well and getting help.
For what I’ve done,
Can’t you tell?
I’m doing better all the time,
I really try.
