We will gather up quartets, choirs, and individual soloists to cover the Greater Dayton community in song this month. Please send the name of your quartet, choir and individual soloists to GDCC, 915 Salem Avenue, Dayton, OH 45406 and the date in May that you would like to perform and the name of the Nursing facility that you would like to support.

GDCC will sponsor a career fair for returning citizens. Returning citizens have served their time in correctional facilities and enter back into our community discouraged when trying to find employment. There are multiple organizations and business that hire returning citizens but they are not widely known to the community. GDCC will partner with organizations that deal specifically with returning citizens and host a job fair. We would like the support of the faith based community in identifying hiring organizations and persons in need of jobs with criminal records. The date and exact location of the job fair will follow. Please send any information on locations hiring returning citizens to GDCC, 915 Salem Avenue, Dayton, OH 45406 by March 30, 2014.
