Building resilient youth and an engaged community.

We are stronger when, above all, every Darien citizen supports and encourages kindness, giving, respect for others and honesty. There is enough sunshine for every roof in this town, enough wind, enough rain. The Depot is a safe place staffed with dependable, vetted adults ready to support our youth no matter the weather.

According to Darien Police Chief Duane Lovello, “Developing and maintaining effective relationships with the youth of our community is an absolutely essential component of our effectiveness as a police department.  Our longstanding partnership with The Depot, including the programs we’ve developed together, really allows for unique and collaborative initiatives.  I get such positive feedback from my officers on their interactions with the kids at The Depot – it’s part of what makes Darien a special place.”
