Serendipity I for men and Serendipity II for women are residential programs primarily for individuals in the criminal justice system who have a substance abuse problem requiring longer-term residential intervention. These two programs also offer treatment to former prisoners re-entering society, as well as providing an effective alternative-to-incarceration to others so that they may become productive citizens who no longer are a burden to society.
Both Serendipity programs are located in the 25th Senate District and Senator Montgomery is proud of her long-standing relationship with this outstanding organization and the quality services they provide to people in our community.
