Recreation Enrichment & Skills Development

Most of us have fond memories of playing ball with our parents, learning how to ride a bike, going to concerts, having mom cheer us on at a soccer game, or having dad videotape us at a dance performance.   Children who have suffered from abuse and neglect may not have these memories. Not only are they missing the memories, they also never learned the important skills that come with those activities.   That is why DCAF is committed to providing recreation, enrichment and skill development programs such as organized sports, art/music lessons, after school activities and school trips.   Additional programs supported also include:  Cooking, Financial Literacy and Life Skills.

With your support, DCAF is working to let children be children.

Durham Children's Aid Foundation is committed to bringing people and financial resources together to improve the quality of life for children and youth, and to help them reach their full potential.
