Please help support your community and DCI families today

Our families need your help. So far, with assistance from partners and friends, we’ve distributed food boxes, frozen meals, and gift cards.

But DCI serves over 1,000 families—and the need will not stop today, or tomorrow, or next week. 



There was a 34 percentage-point increase between families' need for childcare today (15%) versus in one week (49%).
