DGS celebrated a milestone recently with a reception sponsored by Mrs. Carla Markell, First Lady of Delaware and the DGS 60th Anniversary Honorary Chair, at the Governor’s Mansion in Dover.
“Delaware Guidance Services has served as a leader in our community for over 60 years,” said Mrs. Markell.“ The critical services provided by DGS are instrumental to the well-being and health of our children.”
