Serenity House Communities (SHC) is a recovery community organization founded in 2015 by Tara Moreno as an substance use disorder prevention service. SHC provides substance use and co-occurring disorders prevention for men, women, adolescents, and children.
Services are conducted utilizing a Community Resiliency model that meets participants in their current stage of change and empowers them towards a path of recovery. SHC provides a wide spectrum of services including: advocacy and educational events to reduce stigma, recovery coaching to meet participants basic needs and recovery support groups.
SHC is committed to promoting change and awareness; reducing stigma and shame by providing a better understanding of recovery. All services and projects conducted by SHC take place in a strategic planning framework that includes attention to assessing the needs of our participants; assessing and building capacity for the benefit of our participants, researching and applying evidence-based and culturally accepted healing approaches and using outcome and evaluation to drive services, as evidenced by the results of our data collection and analysis.
SHC is aware of cultural diversity and provides cultural competency awareness that helps those who are affiliated with SHC to effectively operate within different cultural contexts with sensitivity toward members of other ethnic or cultural groups.
This program aligns with Tier III Priorities by creating a Recovery Community Organization (RCO) that will be a community coalition created for the purposes of effecting change in targeted areas including: stigma reduction, increase community awareness about addiction and recovery, establish a “home” for the recovering community, and to provide community trainings and awareness events. This project is part of a growing trend to establish RCO’s across the country. The formation of a Recovery Community Organization also supports peer development, within a Recovery Oriented System of Care framework.
