  • Thank You!

    Deercreek is so lucky to have so many generous members and friends of our Women’s Alliance. Once again, we have been able to help so many in the Jacksonville community who are less fortunate than ourselves, and we couldn’t have done it without you all. Wishing you, and your families, a happy and healthy 2019.

    Hats Off to Fashion

    ‘Hats Off to Fashion’, the annual fashion show hosted by the Deercreek Women’s Alliance, and one of our biggest fundraising events of the year, was a huge success thanks to all the attendees, donors, and our generous volunteers who were part of the evenings festivities. Over 100 ladies were in attendance on the evening of November 8th, for a delicious meal, followed by a fabulous parade of Deercreek models in fashion pieces provided by Dillard’s. The success of this event supports the mission of the Alliance, and the charities that we donate to each year.

    Thank you again, we are so blessed by everyone’s generosity.

DWA Spotlight on Charity

  • New Heights

    New Heights (formerly Cerebral Palsy Center of Northeast Florida), driven by its mission “to enrich the lives of persons with disabilities and their families, and empower their independence through lifelong growth and quality services”, provides educational, employment, and therapeutic programming to individuals with disabilities in the five-county area of Northeast Florida: Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, and St Johns. They have been in business for over 60 years and serve individuals with all types of disabilities including cerebral palsy, mental retardation, autism, developmental delays, Down syndrome, spina bifida, and others.

    The programs of New Heights are designed to meet the special needs of each individual and family serviced, with a common goal: to enable people with disabilities to reach their greatest potential and achieve productive lives as fully participating members of their family and community. There are numerous services currently offered including various infant and toddler therapies, respite care, supported living, supported employment, adult developmental training and in-home personal support.

    The adult developmental training programs provides training to adults to increase their skills in grooming and self-care, basic knowledge, job readiness, motor skills, and daily living. The goal is to increase their independence and self-sufficiency to the greatest extent possible.

    Supported living coaches provide training and assistance in a variety of activities to participants in their own homes including the acquisition, retention, or improvement of a variety of skills necessary to enable participants to reside on their own. Supported employment coaches provide training to support participants in sustaining paid employment at or above minimum wage.

    The Deercreek Women’s Alliance has generously donated funds for a number of years, and are used to provide gifts to the adults who attend the annual holiday party.
