Claudette DeCoux is a native of New Orleans, Louisana. She relocated to Huntsville after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. She has been in the medical field for over 21 years. Her experience has stretched from Pediatrics, Oncology, General Medicine, HIV and Internal Medicine. Currently Claudette works for the Philips Health Department in Nashville, Tennessee.
Due to life experiences, she has strong ties to the foster care community as well as a passion for helping others. From her humble beginnings, she established the foundation of Serenity Grace Transitional Housing in hopes of providing a safe haven for children in foster care.
Claudette has been an active foster parent for years. In addition to work, Claudette balances family life which includes her biological children as well as current “bonus” and several former “bonus” children.
Foster placements are referred as her bonus children and are not treated any different then her biological kids. She feels this is an important component to establishing a family dynamic and a sense of stability. Claudette’s goal is to make sure that all children have a safe home and to make sure they have a forever support system.
