Please support DCH's 100th Anniversary Scholarship Appeal!
Donations of $1,000 or more in 2022 will be matched by The Norfolk & Dedham Group!!*

Click HERE to donate now.

Thanks to contributions to the DCH Scholarship Fund, children who otherwise would not have the opportunity learn and grow in our nurturing preschool, make lasting memories at our popular summer camp, and gain skills in our valuable classes. What a joy it has been to watch children come together again and strengthen the social and emotional skills that the pandemic interrupted. Our goal this year, marking the 100th anniversary of DCH, is to continue to grow the number of families granted scholarship, as well as the number of programs provided to them. The need is as strong as ever! Your support will open doors for new families to share in all that DCH has to offer!
