What People Are Saying About Us
DGC has helped my son with manners, helping maintain personal hygiene, starting to think about the future of what he wants to do, helped him learn time management skills & most importantly become the young man he is today.
I have had the privilege of witnessing the positive change Perry and his programs have made, and continue to make in the lives of our young people. I cannot count the number of stories my wife ( a retired Berkeley County School teacher) and daughters (current Berkeley County School teachers) relayed to me about the changes they witnessed in what were troubled young men after they became involved with Officer Perry
Since Joshua has been in DGC, we have seen a tremendous change in him. He thinks before acting. He takes pride in his grades and his appearance. His grades have gone from failing to As and Bs.
Ricardo Perry enthusiasm and tireless commitment to improving the lives of our young men speaks volumes.
Ricardo Perry has been more than just a mentor and role model. He is a constant stable figure that we all look forward to in life. He is the driving force behind most good decisions that we make. Without him there would be no foundation or backbone for the organization to grow from.
It’s a great pleasure the joy my son receives having a mentor he can talk to about anything and enjoys spending all day with. Without this group and the great mentor he has, all I can say is, I'm grateful. DGC was just what my son needed.
“Sgt. Perry is a difference maker because he uses his talents and skills to not only directly serve an area of great importance, but inspire others to do so as well. Sgt. Perry sees in young people what in many cases they do not see themselves; talent, skills, value, and an amazing hope and enthusiasm for their future.”
Sgt. Perry is an incredible asset to the City of Hanahan through his work with youth services through their police department. We are fortunate that he has now expanded his reach through the Exchange Program by providing additional mentoring and support services to young males with involvement in the juvenile justice system in Berkeley County.
