my name is Gregg Kluck and I used to be staff at the old DAPC on Arrellaga street. I am looking to connect with former residents, clients, staff of the center. It was run by Rev. Don Beckman (deceased) and his wife. The place had a tragic fire late 70s and also had centers in Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo. Appreciate anyone who was there to email me @ [email protected] ..Thanks

Hey Gregg!

Wow how great to see you all talking about my Uncle Don! I remember you quite well. I terrorized you as you may recall. "Little Danny"? My family moved to Gilbert, Arizona several years ago and we have suffered some pretty tough losses in those years. First Carolyn's Cancer that she always trusted God for a cure, then Don finding out he too had the disease. It seemed more than I or my family should have had to face. But God is gracious and has brought us through it. Sharon has had some issues too that she has had to overcome. We remember you very well and still have pictures of you and some of your world class models. Do you still love Pepsi? LOL. This was just nice therapy!! Hope all is well with all of you that loved my Aunt and Uncle and we thank God that They touched so many lives. I hope to see you in paradise.

All the best Dan Nicholl

I am so grateful for all of your responses. If anyone has pics from the center or any of the articles that Don Beckman wrote in the DAPC newsletter, a scan would be most appreciated. Any articles about the fire or the other centers would be wanted too. Scans are ok as I do not need the actual item. I am sure that those are treasured by their owners. It is my desire to create a web presence to honor those that worked at the DAPC, at least when I learn how to do that. Thanx

WOW! it is so good to see people who remember the revolutionary work that Don, Carolyn, Sharon, Jackie, Rick, Gary and everyone did... we may be scattered to the 4 winds, but the Message and impact will never let us be the same!!! It's absolutely INCREDIBLE to see something from you Dan! How are you, your mom,your sister, nephew, brother-in-law, aunt and cousin? How are Darby and CoCo? lol
I had the privilege and honor of coming through in 96 and remaining as volunteer staff til November, 2000 and ONLY left to marry. I realize those are probably the best times of my life... all the people and the living word of God through such an anointed teacher! It was even at DAPC that I began leading worship; I owe EVERYone at DAPC more than I could ever express. If anyone happens to get ahold of some of those newsletters I would really appreciate seeing them. We had found a BUNCH of memorabilia when we were preparing for that 30th anniversary car wash in 99, but not sure where it ended up.

My Name is Mike Coke. I was born in 1973 while my family was living at the center. My first memory is walking from the building in the back (The front door was a sliding glass door) across the courtyard and into the main building for breakfast. I never really knew I was in a Drug Abuse center, only that I was some place that was very fun and caring. It was great to see people talkng about the center but sad to hear about Don. I have fond memories but names dont match faces. I have a few pictures from before the fire that have already been scanned, and will foward them soon. Visiting Ojai but living in Colorado.

My sister (Crystal Coke) was also interested in finding a talking to anyone from the center. She is running a sober living program in Ventura

My grandmother just pulled out every Bulletin from 1971-1976.
Crystal is going to scan them in and pass them along.
Saw my birth announcement in the Dec 73 issue.
