In 1961, Sybil Lynch founded a nursery school at St. David’s Episcopal Church, and just four years later, St. David’s Center began serving children with additional needs.
To celebrate 60 years of serving families and children, St. David’s Center’s 32nd annual Make Them Shine Gala is set for May 15. Tickets aren’t required since this year’s event is being held virtually. Guests will hear from speakers from the community, learn about the impact of the center’s work with families and participate in a live auction.
St. David’s Center provides child and family services in the Twin Cities area. The organization’s portfolio of services addresses significant family and community concerns related to early childhood education, developmental issues, childhood trauma, parent-child attachment, mental health concerns, autism and more.
The center houses a preschool, children’s mental health clinic and pediatric therapy clinic. It also provides day treatment programs at the Minneapolis and Minnetonka campuses for children with autism and mental health diagnoses. A variety of programs are offered throughout the Twin Cities in community settings and in family homes.
