About Serenity Park Sanctuary:

Serenity Park Sanctuary is an independent work therapy program for disabled, formerly homeless, veterans with combat-related trauma. These veterans work with similarly traumatized, rescued parrots who reside at a sanctuary on the ground of the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center. Employment at Serenity Park Sanctuary allows the veterans a transitional period in a stress-free environment to regain their confidence and learn valuable skills for future permanent employment. The parrots benefit by having permanent placement in large aviaries that allow them to fly and floc with others of their same species while being provided loving care by the veterans. The unique relationship that develops is therapeutic for both and the veterans are allowed flexible schedules so they can continue physical and mental health appointments.
