Our Philosophy and Focus


Improving the lives of children, families, and communities is not a pithy catchphrase. It is our organizational core value. We are firm in our conviction of a concentric paradigm that says: healthy children and strong families are the foundation to safe communities. In safe communities, families and children thrive and are able to build a healthy society. DDG has a consistent focus on moving the marker forward in Home Visiting, Preventing Youth Homelessness and Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect.
