Together with families, community partners and other stakeholders, St. David’s Center will build communities that support healthy relationships and development.

St. David’s Center was founded more than 50 years ago. Although no longer affiliated with the church, we retain the St. David’s name to honor our community heritage. Formerly known as St. David’s Child Development & Family Services, we changed our name to St. David’s Center for Child & Family Development in 2009 to better reflect our position as a center for leadership in child and family development. We continue our mission to build relationships that nurture every child and family.
