Community Canvas


“There’s a lot of honesty and unconditional love and acceptance at DECSA. You walk up and down the halls – the facilitators and participants and even staff in other programs, we all see each other and smile every day. And there’s kindness and there’s gentleness and there’s no judgement.”

– Transitions participant

“Decsa was the best thing that ever happened to me. Amazing staff.”

– Program participant

“Everyone at DECSA believed in me. They kept telling me I deserved something better, and I could get there.”

– Assets for Success participant

“I came in to your office feeling very down on myself … I only met with you twice and I’m in a way better place.”

– Community Hub Job Searcher

“The inclusive atmosphere makes me feel at home.”
