Dorchester Children's Center unveiled a large new plaque on its newest building Wednesday as a crowd of town, county and state officials applauded with praise. 

A site for abused children, the organization was in desperate need of more space back in 2014 when staff set a $2.5 million capital campaign in motion.

While some of the money is still needed, Roper St. Francis Physician’s Endowment donated $1 million, with $500,000 up front. The money came with a promise of a matching $500,000 once Children's Center officials raised the same amount, which they did in early 2017, ahead of schedule, through community pledges and donations. The gift totalled $1,000,000.
