Partnership:Dental Care International
The children at Grace have been very fortunate to work with Dental Care International over the past 5 years. DCI was established by Dr. Dawn McClellan and is a one year training program to train young women to become dental assistants. DCI sponsors their education and living expenses. To date, four children from Grace have graduated from the program and all were offered jobs in Dental practices upon graduation. The young women who are currently working in dental practices are now earning a middle class wage and living independently.
This program proved our girls were capable of completing a robust learning program and chartered a path for them to live independently. We are looking into opportunities to further their career pathways..
