Kerr cares

At Kerr, we support and empower the most vulnerable among us with the simple goal of helping them survive, thrive, and lead more fulfilling lives.

“I truly believe that Albertina Kerr, for us, was a matter of life and death and I feel like we have our life back.”

– Parent of a Children’s Mental Health client

Children’s Mental Health

When a child struggles with life’s challenges, Kerr is here. Nearly 500 children, teens and their families received vital mental health services from Kerr last year.

I/DD Residential and Enrichment Services

To more than 300 children and adults with I/DD each year, Kerr is life: home, community, fulfillment, and joy.


“Everything you take for granted, our son struggles with. Kerr allows us to be parents and love our child, instead of figuring out how to be professional caregivers.”

– Parent of a Group Home resident
