CDC History

Lydia Chichester du Pont founded the Children's Beach House in 1936. Over the past 79 years CBH has served children with polio, cerebral palsy, and a variety of mild orthopedic conditions. Today, while the programs have changed to address the needs of children in the 21st century, the mission remains constant.

Our programs stress three underlying principles:

  • Young people need a set of core assets or values to move successfully through childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood.
  • Families are the most fundamental factors influencing children.
  • Families are strong when safe and thriving communities support them.
