The pandemic has been hard on so many in our community. The need is great – not only the social and emotional needs of our children, but also the economic needs of many families. Now that many parents are returning to work, they are looking for summer enrichment and childcare for their children. We are eager to provide program options -- and to make them affordable for as many community members as possible. Your support of DCH and our financial aid fund is critical to making summer camp, preschool, swim lessons, and recreational programming accessible to dozens of families struggling to get by. We cannot do it without you!


Words of thanks from some of our recent financial aid recipients:

“Please know that DCH and all of your staff have been amazing for my child, and I appreciate it. His first year he was so excited about the “boneros” (bow and arrows)! Every year since, he always jumped in the car at the end of the day and told me how he did in archery. DCH rocks and we hope to be back next year and every year – until he WORKS there!”       -- DCH Summer Camp parent

“I do not have any idea how to thank you for your kindness. The last couple of months have been stressful and uncertain, but DCH Preschool has been such a lovely constant. We consider it a huge privilege to be able to send our daughter to such a loving place every day.”           -- DCH Preschool parent


“Thank you for all the kindness and accommodations shown to our autistic adult son who lives in a group home near DCH. He loves going to the pool, as do his housemates. It is a wonderfully therapeutic and calming activity for him, and I know you moved mountains this year to make it happen.”      -- Parent of DCH Pool user
