Sen. Chris McDaniel and AT&T to present $10,000 donation to DCCH Center for Children & Families

Senator Chris McDaniel and AT&T will present a $10,000 donation to the DCCH Center for Children & Families on Tuesday, November 30, at 2:30 p.m. at the DCCH Welcome Center.

The DCCH Center heals childhood trauma and brings families together.

Senator McDaniel and his wife, Renee, have been supporters of DCCH Center’s mission for a number of years and are very familiar with the good work DCCH does with survivors of child abuse and neglect.

It was their referral to AT&T that made this donation possible.

“We are blessed to have such generous support from both the McDaniels and AT&T. Each year we must raise an increasingly larger amount of funds to provide services to the fragile children in our care. This fiscal year, that gap in funding is $1.9 million. It’s gifts like this that make it possible to carry out our mission and we are so grateful for this amazing donation.” Bob Wilson, DCCH Executive Director.

Sen. McDaniel appreciates the important work of DCCH.

“Providing a safe environment for some of the Commonwealth’s most vulnerable children has never been more important,” said State Senator Chris McDaniel. “The work being carried out by the staff and volunteers at DCCH improves the lives of countless Kentuckians and I thank them for their hard work.”

Founded in 1848, DCCH has served thousands of children in need. What was once a traditional orphanage, where children would live until they were either emancipated or adopted, is now a multi-faceted agency focused in several areas: a Residential Treatment Program for children, many of whom have suffered abuse and/or neglect; Therapeutic Foster Care and Adoption Program; Targeted Case Management; and The Therapy Center at DCCH – providing outpatient therapy which is open to the entire community.
