Our Success Stories
I was the first resident placed at DASE in 2012. I finished my last 3 years of high school in the program, and graduated in May 2015. I am now a freshman at a university in Missouri and loving college! I would not be where I am today without my family at DASE. – 18 Year Old
I was way behind on credits in high school when I was placed at DASE. With the support of DASE and my school, I was able to get completely caught up and walk the stage with my classmates in 2013. They allowed me to maintain a relationship with my baby daughter while in care and we are both doing well. I’m living independently and have started my own business. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me. – 20 Year Old
I was making a lot of bad choices before I went to DASE. I wasn’t hanging with a good group of people and I wasn’t respecting my family. DASE was the first placement I had been to that made me want to get my life together. I made the honor roll for the first time and have made a lot of changes. The staff at DASE are like my aunts and uncles, and the residents are like brothers. – 15 Year Old
