Partnership:Dental Care International
The children at Grace were fortunate to work with Dental Care International for five years. DCI was established by Dr. Dawn McClellan and was a one-year training program to train young women to become dental assistants. DCI sponsored their education and living expenses. Four children from Grace graduated from the program, and all were offered jobs in Dental practices upon graduation. The young women who are currently working in dental offices are earning a middle-class wage and living independently.
This program proved our girls could complete a robust learning program and chartered a path to live independently. We are looking into opportunities to further their career pathways
