Dorcas International and Children’s Friend


Much of our attention these past few months has centered around the renovation and opening of our new Althea Early Childhood Center of Excellence. Just as exciting has been an amazing partnership with Dorcas International Institute.

Through this partnership, just a few weeks ago, we opened a Head Start classroom at the Dorcas International site at 220 Elmwood Avenue in Providence.

This partnership allows both Children’s Friend and Dorcas International to serve some of our most vulnerable children and families in an integrated and innovative manner. We at Children’s Friend are excited about our partnership with Dorcas International and look forward to achieving great outcomes for those we both serve.
