We make special mention of our Friend of Dewende, the late Dr. Debra  Rodriguez, who, despite a terminal illness took her preciously limited time and energy to work with Dr. Gwen Fischer to develop a Diversity Training Module (see Projects page) to help us raise funds for the Dewende Project.  We honor her efforts on our behalf and hold her memory dear.


We make special mention of a Friend of Dewende, the late Dorothy A. Hall, who left a bequest to DACDP, Inc. in her will. 

Thank you for believing is us and our mission.
