More than quality programs for adults with an intellectual disability, the Dartmouth Adult Services Centre (DASC) gives individuals the support they need to realize their true potential and become active members of their community. Through a variety of vocational day programs and community employment programs, DASC ensures that each client can find personal fulfillment. 

Offering dynamic services to the business community, DASC and its clients are a vital part of the community. 

Message from our Board Chair:

The board, clients and staff at DASC congratulate our long-time executive director, Cathy Deagle-Gammon on her municipal election win. When the new Halifax Regional Municipal Council is sworn in on October 29, Cathy will become councillor for District 1, serving Waverley-Fall River-Musquodoboit Valley.

While we’re thrilled for Cathy and the residents of her district who will benefit from her representation, this new role will mean that, after more than two decades, she will be retiring from her position with DASC.

Cathy will remain active in her executive director role and duties while the organization plans for the transition process. In the coming weeks, DASC’s board will form a hiring committee to begin the work of recruiting Cathy’s successor.

Cathy is committed to assisting the organization in a smooth transition and, while the date of her departure has not been finalized, the goal is to have the new executive director in place early in the new year.

Clients and families can be confident that this transition period will not affect DASC’s programs or services.

Congratulations, Cathy!
