We are DCM
Saving Youth
One Child at a Time

DCM was founded out of a need in our communities to develop leadership and activism in Children/Youth using several core principles; Discipline, Training/Development, Parent Involvement and Activism.
Our goal is to form a community of parents that will partner with the organization in shaping the lives of our children and youth. DCM will strive to tap into each Child/Youth’s interests and strengths by partnering with their parents to develop their skills to its fullest potential. Being a member of Deliverance Children’s Ministry provides families the opportunity to commune with other families to develop a community and safe haven for their Child/Youth to thrive.

DCM meets these needs by providing a village of supports through family workshops, tutoring programs, enrichment and career development, financial literacy and more, to aid in the advancement of youth and their families. DCM is the only community based organization to provide entrepreneurship programs and opportunities to youth ages 4 – 12, merging academic excellence with career exploration.

Letter from the President:

As Co-founder of Deliverance Children’s Ministry, my vision is to provide a space for youth to call their second home. Like the ancient African proverb says, “it takes a village to raise a child” so with that same mission DCM strives to create a safe haven where youth are engaged in structural programs in academia, enrichment career development workshops and extracurricular activities. DCM operates out of its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, and chapters in New York City and Jersey City NJ. The Staff at DCM would like to thank Episcopal of Jersey City for providing a space at the Triangle Park Community Center so that DCM can expand its academic enrichment and career development programs in Jersey City to youth in underserved communities, closing the educational opportunity gap and creating community change agents. We invite you to join our village.
