WE DID IT TOGETHER...
In mid 2019, the WCDC spoke with the family of a Mr. Barnard McGaughy, who had been locked-up for nearly 20 years, for an offense, that most would have been released under 10 years.
Barnard rehabilitated himself and became a role model and a god loving young man. The first words Barnard said, "The WCDC letter helped me get out!" Our mission is to help beautiful people like Mr. McGaughy, without hesitation, and with strong conviction

Hard-working Son Cares For His Mother
Meet Ronald, a long-time resident of South Central Los Angeles, a hard-worker, and a loving son to his 96 year old mother. The WCDC on behalf of Councilman's Joe Buscaino is proud to help struggling families like Ron live life a little better.
Child support and back child support affects many families by removing needy funding to buy food, clothing, and shelter. Ron had his driver license taken, affecting his ability to care for his mother. Sometimes we all need a little help, sometimes, just to make it to the next day. We are proud of you Ronald and God Bless your family with love and happiness.
