Daily Shepherd Preschool and Childcare
Daily Shepherd Child Care Center is a smaller, more intimate faith based center. The heart and soul of our center is the love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus. With that as our focus, at our center you will find a loving, warn, and faith-filled staff that will help your child grow spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. We have a "family like" feel which you see as we learn, play, and eat together. Children are embraced for who they are and we help them grow from where they are at so they can become all that they can be.

In 2003, a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible organization was born with the initial purpose of obtaining sponsorships for children living in orphanages of the Caribbean.
Since that time our outreach has grown due to additional needs that have come to our attention. CCF now works to obtain sponsors for the education of children and young adults and to obtain medical care for critically ill children. We are also working in a remote community to construct a school, and orphanage, and a medical facility.
On the horizon is assistance to children living in the bateys of the Dominican Republic. Bateys are communities of families working as slaves in the sugar cane fields. Their housing is inadequate and substandard, many times on the cities' dump sites. A majority of the community consists of illegal Haitians attempting to eek out a living for their families back in Haiti. As a result, children suffer from lack of food, lack of education, and lack of medical care. Sponsors will make it possible for us to launch a program to help the children of this community.

Hand2Hand partners with local churches and schools to provide a backpack filled with supplemental food that bridges the gap of weekend hunger. Food sent home consists of breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner items, often sent home with a recipe card included. The program nourishes more than physical needs. It provides consistency, love, and demonstrates to all within a home that people do care. And ultimately, that God cares.
