Decat was formed in response to the increasing numbers of children being placed in foster care. Working with child welfare and juvenile justice services, Decat serves the needs of area youth, communities and families. It is a firm belief of Decat that children are better raised in homes with their families than by the government. Decat also recognizes that problems within a family are often more apparent to community members than the state government. Through collaboration of community leaders, Decat offers special services to help families raise and educate their children, thereby reducing government dependency.
