Welcome to the Home and School Association of the Southbury Training School
As the parents, relatives, guardians, advocates, and friends of the residents of the Southbury Training School, we thank you for your interest in our organization.
Our primary interest is the welfare of our loved ones. We support and help sustain the highest standards of care, training, and general morale at the School. Our population at the school is aging, and increasingly infirm; they need our help now more than ever.
The Home and School Association offers parents, guardians, siblings and friends important information and support. We seek the best ongoing care solutions for our residents. We help each other navigate the challenges we all face in the years to come. Our involvements range from festive holiday parties, celebrations and gifts, to glorious summer concerts on the lawn, to comprehensive communications with the Department of Developmental Services and other relevant organizations in the field. We try to be informed about anything that might affect the quality of life of STS residents. We are developing an understanding of the implications of the Messier settlement, and hope to offer guidance towards finding appropriate alternatives and solutions for all individuals and their families.
We encourage you to learn about Home and School, how STS has changed, how you can become involved, and how we advocate for a superior quality of life for our residents and loved ones. We encourage you to make use of our resources so you, too, can become a more informed and effective advocate and supporter. We invite you to join us.
