Serendipity Center is a non-profit therapeutic school in Portland for at-risk children in grades K-12 whose complex social-emotional needs have resulted in repeated failures in public school. Today Serendipity serves over 100 children with behavioral, psychological and learning challenges stemming from severe personal, social and family dysfunctions.
