You Can Help

Money is great but supplies are always welcome and much needed. Art and craft supplies such as fabric, paper, ribbon, crayons, markers and paints along with many other things can always be used by our adults with disabilities who love to create.

Time equals money when you volunteer at DCO.

A varietyof opportunities exist to volunteer in our Early Child Care and Education building! You may be rocking babies to sleep, playing with and/or reading to children, attending day-time field trips as a chaperone, or being an extra set of hands and eyes for on and off campus activities.  

The children also love when volunteers come in to share about their occupation - i.e. firefighters, athletes, etc.

DCO participates in the Foster Grandparent Program - our children love their classroom grandparents!

For college and high school students, service learning and practicums with DCO are a great way to get real world experience.

Register with the Family Care Safety Registry at and you will be ready to volunteer here at DCO! Background check required- this takes 30 days to be approved. Cost is $11.

Please call (417) 829-0801 for more information.
