In 1969, six single mothers from Central Brooklyn communities organized a parent support group to provide safe, affordable and quality child care services for each other and the broader community. As many women were seeking to improve their economic condition by returning to school or joining the work force a reliable childcare center became necessary and so CDSC was founded. The organization continues to support and advocate for the needs of families and community resources.
