Kids raise money for DCCH

Donnie and Hanna McGuire loved that their children and their two friends decided to set up a treat stand in their front yard, to benefit the children living at DCCH. In less than three hours, they made $250, exceeding their expectations! The kids were so proud to deliver their donation to Ron Bertsch, DCCH's Director of Foster Care and Adoption.

On behalf of all the children at DCCH, we want to thank the McGuire family and friends, as well as their community for their kindness and generosity!

Coronavirus restrictions aren’t just keeping families physically apart, it’s keeping them from being made.

Courts aren’t open to legalize adoptions right now, but the Galbraith family in Kenton County family found a way around that.

A story about comforting others

Recently, a child in one of our foster homes was able to return to his birth parents along with his older sister. His foster parents were thrilled to help him transition home and celebrated in his family’s success.

The foster mother shared, “Reunification is always the initial goal in foster care, and I'm so blessed to have been part of it. When I told him he was going home the excitement was tangible and contagious. How could I feel anything but happy for him in that moment. When I took him home I didn't feel uneasy or stressed; it seemed right. As his parents helped me unpack his luggage we talked with ease about the excitement of the moment and, they thanked me over and over for taking care of him. I wish every foster journey could end like this.”

Congratulations to this family! You, too, could be a part of a success story like this one. Contact us today to learn more how you can #ChangeLives.

Give Peace

581 days after being removed from their mother’s care, three siblings left DCCH’s Therapeutic Foster Care program to live with a relative. The children’s foster parents celebrated this family’s reunion by hosting a good-bye party! They invited baby sitters, classmates, teachers, and respite providers to honor the friendships made and the memories created with the children. This success story was made possible through the sacrifices and devotion of DCCH foster parents and the support of our therapists, case managers, and respite care providers. DCCH is honored to have played a part in bringing everyone together for a happy future!
