Ways We Serve:


Clothe-A-Child

Vouchers are provided to area social service agencies and local schools.  These vouchers can be used to purchase school uniforms, coats and/or shoes for children in need.

DECA/DECA Prep

The Dayton Early College Academy (DECA) is a non-traditional charter school focused on preparing first-generation, urban students to attend college.  CCS volunteers assist DECA students as they navigate this journey by being mentors, leading book clubs and wherever else there is a need.

Erma's House

Erma's House supports children and their families who have been separated by unfortunate circumstances.  CCS volunteers oversee the visitation of the child with their non-custodial parent, thus creating a safe environment.

Infant Grieving

CCS members hand sew candles on small white robes that are given to parents of stillborn babies or to parents who have lost a child shortly after birth.

Layettes

Layettes are the one project all CCS chapters provide.  CSS members assemble literature and starter baby items.  The Dayton Chapter distributes over 1000 layettes each year.
