Pivot Realty Supports DCCH Kids

Pivot Realty Group

Many thanks to our friends at Pivot Realty Group in Ft. Wright who conducted a drive (with help of office neighbors from Bank of England Mortgage) to collect personal care and hygiene supplies.

These items will be put to good use by our youngsters in Residential Treatment program. We are grateful for the support!


Just keep doing what you’re doing because you guys are saving lives—not just the kids, but the families too!

I wanted to take a minute to share with you how AWESOME Kelly Lightner (Therapy Center Therapist) has been to our family. Kelly is responsive and supportive of us as we navigate our daughter’s big emotions, always able to provide the right words and holds space in the hard times. Our daughter considers Kelly a friend.

I can truly say that DCCH is the best facility in Kentucky to serve kids. I can not thank you guys enough.
