24 Hour Residential Care
Kerr’s group homes provide services that support each individual’s special needs, while allowing residents to live as independently as possible.
Adult Group Homes
Kerr operates community-based residential homes in Clackamas, Marion, Multnomah, and Washington counties. Every home is supported by highly qualified staff who help residents gain increased choice and control over their lives. All of our residents have their own private bedroom; decorated according to their wishes. Homes are equipped to meet the needs of the people we serve.
Youth Group Homes
Kerr’s neighborhood youth group homes offer support and life-skills training for children and teens ages 7-18. Each home provides a stable, safe, and nurturing environment. Children are comforted knowing they have a place to call home and can enjoy the privacy of their own bedroom.
We focus on life-skill development, education, behavior management, and appropriate socialization. The staff works as a team with family members, psychiatrists, therapists, and behavior specialists to develop each child’s individual support plan and help them achieve their fullest potential.
