At Serenity Village, we feel that being of service is a critical component of recovery. Our team encourages the residents to become active in service to others. We have initiated various activities for our residents to serve the recovery community as well as the community at large. Some of these activities include taking 12-step meetings into treatment and detox centers, serving food at homeless shelters etc. Below are some examples of some of our outreach activities:
