Serving Decatur and Macon County for over 50 years

Since 1964 DMCOC has been providing stability to Decatur and Macon County. DMCOC has accomplished this through a wide variety of programs designed to support the community. DMCOC is growing and we are looking for new programs and partnerships to maintain the stability for our clients and to better support the community.
