Paper people forming heart shape

Yes.

Our client population doubled between October and November of 2013.

Representatives of the Veteran’s Administration inspected our facility to determine if it met their specifications to certify DDAC for the placement of the men and women who fought for our country. Currently, we are correcting the issues noted in preparation for caring for members of the armed services.

Thanks to Lowe’s Heroes, the garden portion of DDAC’s proposed Outdoor Living Oasis is a reality. We now have fresh veggies and flowers growing just outside the door! Our garden is a demonstration of Lowe’s “employees’ willingness to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty” to make DDAC a more attractive place for our clients and our staff.
