LATEST NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
DCCH Center for Children and Families is pleased to announce the selection of Denise Govan as the new Executive Director. Denise joins the DCCH family as the third Executive Director in the past 31 years. Sister Jean Marie Hoffman, S.N.D. held that post for 23 years, followed by Bob Wilson’s eight years leading the organization.
Joe and Jess Kues celebrated an adoption finalization. Even before being sworn in for testimony, thirteen-year-old Steven interrupted Family Court Judge Abigail Voelker to announce he wished to become a Kues. He hammered the gavel down, leaving no doubt of his new official status. Just short of two years he has been living with the Kues family when joining their lives through foster care. Steven was welcomed by brothers Kian and Donavan, and big sister Alannah. A court room full of people with many relatives and friends came to mark the special milestone in his life. Congratulations Steven and the Kues family!
