Building expansion 2015

Happening Now

For more than 50 years, St. David's Center has been dedicated to the development of every child 

The second and final phase of the $13.7 million renovation and expansion of our 94 year-old building is underway. 

Our goal is to build a state-of-the-art early childhood, early intervention treatment and training center.

Phase 2 (2015) of renovation will:
