Our foundation is a not-for-profit organization that hosts the Walk of HEROes and other fundraising activities to help support behavioral health and developmental disability services provided by the DeKalb CSB. Each year, the DeKalb CSB provides more than 10,000 uninsured and underinsured adults and youth a full range of community-based public mental health, developmental disability and substance abuse services. DeKalb CSB employs more than 500 staff, operates more than 20 locations and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
Patty and her husband have gained peace of mind since their two sons started attending the DeKalb Services Center nearly 30 years ago. The center is a DeKalb Community Service Board day program serving 120 adults with developmental disabilities. See video testimonial.
