This summer, DTL is relocating to the Ebbert Memorial United Methodist Church at 532 C Street in Springfield. We’re sad to be leaving the Head Start location after 6 wonderful years of partnership, however, since they are in need of the additional space to expand their offices we want to wish them continued success in their growth. Moving to the church, which has generously offered us the whole third floor of their building, we will have the opportunity to expand as well. We will have more space, larger classrooms and the room to serve more students! In order to prepare for a fresh start this fall, we are canceling the July-August session of classes.

There’s a lot of painting and packing going on, but we’re really excited about the move and are delighted that we’ll continue to be part of the Springfield community. We expect to be open in our new location by August 1. Read more

We need your help! Can you chip in $5, $10, $25 or more to our CauseVox campaign to help with moving expenses? Goal: $4,000 by June 30.

Yes, I'll help!
