LATEST NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
DCCH has cared for children and families since 1848. A lot has changed in the past 171 years, but one thing hasn't: the commitment from community friends like YOU!
We are always grateful for your support. Whether you volunteer, donate, or advocate, your gifts will #changealife.
Our Residential Building was constructed in the early 1960's. And, while the children's bedrooms and common areas have been updated a few times, the kitchens have remained "retro." Thanks to a very generous donor, we are completely overhauling the kitchen spaces.
The only downside is the temporary loss of cooking space while renovations occur. You can help us through this time with minimal disruption by signing up to provide a meal through Meal Train. Click below to get cooking!
Sending out a huge "Thank you!" to the Charles H Dater Foundation for their generous $20,000 grant in support of our Targeted Case Management Program!
This new initiative will help at-risk children and their guardians access a variety of social services designed to keep them in their homes, instead of a foster or residential placement.

Jack & Remy’s Bayou Band comes to DCCH! Author Joani Lacy and illustrator Debbie Kern visited us recently to bring a smile, story, and song to our Foster Care Support Group families AND the children living in our Residential Program. Their entertaining book reading, art project, geography lesson, and song emphasized inclusion and the importance of finding your unique gifts. Thank you!
