Serra Center Charity Profile
In 1975, Serra Residential Center was founded as a service unit of the National Benevolent Association, the health and human services arm of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The agency, designed as a model peer living center aimed at integrating adults with developmental disabilities into the community, opened its doors on an exclusive 3 acre campus with a private drive located in the foothills of Mission San Jose in Fremont. Initially, the services provided were Community Care Residential Facilities housing 12 individuals, along with an on-site Day Time Activity Center, DTAC, which promoted educational and employment development.Mission is to provide dignity, respect and choice for persons with developmental disabilities.
