Paintings from students

Students of Mount Notre Dame created beautiful paintings for the children and families in our foster care program. We love the inspirational quotes and colorful artwork!

There are many different ways to support and bring positivity to our foster families and children in foster care. Learn more about becoming a foster parent with DCCH.

Note from a child

The DCCH Foster Care Team works tirelessly to recruit loving families for children in need of a secure home.

They LOVE hearing back from our families, and this letter from a recently placed foster child totally made their day!

Child donates gifts to kids in need.

Sophie G., a 13 year old Girl Scout and young advocate for DCCH, collected toys for the children in our Residential Treatment Program. Sophie and her family have volunteered at DCCH in many ways over the years. She recently dropped off the gifts she collected.

Thank you, Sophie!!

Below is the letter Sophie wrote to Santa.

Dear Santa,

This year I don’t want any presents. I want to donate all the stuff I could have asked for to kids in homeless shelters and hospitals.

The Comfort Quilters

Comfort Quilters came through again this year in a mighty way. Jan and Emily Paolucci and many of their quilting friends created over 100 quilts and the same number of pillow cases. With each comes a special prayer all the children in our foster families and all the children living in the DCCH Residential Program. This is the second year for such beautiful and generous gifts.
