A New House for ABC in Darien!

Thank You!


Thanks to the generosity of all of our Capital Campaign donors, together we made our dream a reality. We moved into our new home at 103 Tokeneke Road in October 2014.


ABC is indebted to its Founders, the First Congregational Church, the Darien Community and all past and present ABC Board Members for their vision and support.




To provide scholarships to academically talented girls of color from underserved areas allowing them to realize their academic and social potential while living in Darien and attending DHS.



History of Success
