Please give a warm welcome to Margaret, the newest member of the DPD Family. 

Sadly, since graduating high school, Margaret had primarily been isolated in her room. Her mother died suddenly and she was left without anywhere to go.
 
Thankfully for Margaret, we stepped in and were able to provide her with a home within hours of her mom’s passing.

She now has the opportunity to live an independent life with dignity.
Margaret is just once example of the many people DPD helps.  We are blessed to do the work that we do!

"From an Institution to a Caring Home", shows how Delores overcame many obstacles, including institutionalization and discrimination, to thrive in a community setting.
