Overview of our Organization
We began in 1997 as a women’s entrepreneurial support program, under the name “Ladies of Destiny and Purpose, International. In 1999, our focus and mission broadened, and we formed “Destiny and Purpose Community Outreach (DAPCO) a charitable, educational and mission minded community development organization.
DAPCO is dedicated to assisting individuals to become stabilized, well rounded and anchored members of society.
DAPCO is committed to preserving the family by encouraging values and providing assistance and skills that will enable individuals to maintain healthy lives and relationships. Through these relationships, we propose to provide tools, resources and information that will include structured plans of resolution along with planned tactics that can be implemented as avenues for improving their quality of life.
Our Mission: The Mission of Destiny and Purpose Community Outreach (DAPCO) is to strengthen family: equipping men, women and youth who are at risk of becoming non-achievers with the skills and resources to become productive citizens with new hope; living purposeful lives with moral and ethical values.
