The Tour – Discovery Depot
Discovery Depot Provides Love
Licensed daycare for our pre-k kids is essential. Homeless children often do not have a chance to experience quality child care, and are at risk for abuse, neglect and exploitation because of their precarious situation. Discovery Depot’s caring teachers support children to instill in them confidence, self-worth, a love for learning and other building blocks for success in the face of adverse circumstances.
BHC’s Discovery Depot Licensed Child Care Center (DD) is the first licensed child care center in California located at a homeless shelter. The program is free to eligible client families and allows BHC resident parents to travel off-campus to pursue housing, work, educational, parenting or substance abuse prevention opportunities while their children receive nurturing early child care and education that prepares them for school – and life.
“…it’s critical, that we continue to have this service.”
