My son Christopher moved into the Hellenos House run by ACDS in September 2008.
He adjusted beautifully and had the house running well within weeks, with the help of a wonderful staff.
Last year an opportunity came up for me at work. It was a wonderful job offer but it would have meant traveling 48 weeks a year anywhere in the country, I would also have to move. I hesitated, because of my family, but then realized my other 2 boys were grown and moving on with their own lives, and Chris was in a home where he was taken care of and more importantly, loved.
If not for the staff and the management of ACDS, I would not have been able to pursue this job opportunity. Because I felt Chris was safe and cared for I was able to take the job, move to New Jersey, and have never regretted it for a moment.
The house always makes Chris available when I visit, and the house has welcomed my "stand in Moms " when asked.
The Hellenos House is a safe and loving environment for my child.
