In early January, a group of children donated stuffed animals to our forensic interview program for our clients to take home with them. One little girl from the group, Ella - age 5, was wowed by the beauty of our campus and our three homes. When she walked in the front door of our Forensic Interview house, Ella's mom explained this is where Jodi Byrnes, DCAC's Director of the Forensic Interview Program, works. Immediately, Ella said, "This does not look like work!"
As we head into the summer months, which is our busiest time for volunteer groups coming on campus, we love this story as a reminder of the hard work these individuals do at DCAC every year. Various organizations and companies dedicate days to cleaning up and making our campus look wonderful and bright. This work does not go unnoticed even by our youngest supporters, like Ella. All the hard work that each volunteer group dedicates to DCAC makes this campus a warm and friendly atmosphere for all children who step onto it.
To all of the individuals and groups who help us with our various volunteer projects, thank you. You are the driving force behind making our houses feel like homes.
