Why give to the DLC Nurse & Learn?



August & Nancy Frias

The DLC Nurse & Learn is the only daycare center in Jacksonville, Florida, accepting at an affordable price kids with severe impairments / medical needs. It provides childcare for children ages birth to 23 years old of all abilities, including those with severe cognitive and/or physical impairments and/or complex medical needs.


Founded in 1989 by Amy Buggle and run by her until December, 2019, the DLC is a daycare, after-school, and summertime facility. Heather Corey is now the executive director. The DLC is a great boon not only because it provides therapy and education to the children, but also because it allows parents and guardians of children with multiple impairments and/or complex medical needs to remain working. Often of parents of such children must cut back their hours or leave their jobs because no childcare options are available for them.


Our son, August, attended DLC after school and during the summers from 2001 until 2013, when he passed away. The DLC staff provided him with an extraordinary level of care and fully respected his dignity as a  human being.


My wife and I wish to express our gratitude to the DLC by asking you to send them a donation of $10 (or more). We run this new-music site (August’s List) for the purpose of raising funds for the DLC. I (Chris) also sit on the DLC’s Board of Directors because I want to give back to this organization that did so much for our family.


Please go to the link below. All major credit cards as well as PayPal are accepted. The DLC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so donations should be tax deductible.
