Kids Care Program

DCAC offers 2 different Kids Care Programs year round. Our Kids Care Programs assist DCAC families in providing essential items for the children receiving services at our center. These programs are an important service offered by DCAC because many of the caregivers utilizing DCAC services have taken in a relative or family member unexpectedly to help avoid a child(ren) from entering the foster care system. Often times caregivers do not receive any financial or additional support for taking loved ones into their home. DCAC counts on donations from local churches, individuals, businesses, schools, and organizations to run each of these programs. In addition to items, we also accept gift cards and monetary donations which are used to purchase items for our families in need.

Kids Hygiene Closet

All Year Long

As a way to further help our families, we collect hygiene products all year round to distribute to clients who may have difficulty getting them otherwise.

Needs include but are not limited to: shampoo and conditioner (for all types), brushes, deodorant, soap, body wash, lotion, wash clothes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, diapers, feminine products, and floss.

Kid’s School Closet

From June through August; all year long

We get lists from each child’s school and provide each child with everything on the list in order to start the school year fully stocked. As the year goes on, we continue to provide our kids with supplies as they need new things.

Needs include but are not limited to: binders, pencils, pens, backpacks, paper, scissors, markers, crayons, rulers, pencil sharpeners, calculators, and pencil holders.

If you are an individual, business, or organization interested in setting up a Donation Drive to benefit DCAC, please contact Alexa Roberts at or 843-875-1551.
