A Committed Sickle Cell Nonprofit Organization

Help us spread awareness about sickle cell anemia and provide support to those affected by this horrible disease by contributing to the educational and support programs offered by our sickle cell nonprofit organization based in Browns Mills, NJ. DVSCAI provides the public with vital details about sickle cell anemia.

Our efforts to disseminate sickle cell information include explaining the importance for couples to be tested for the disease's trait before they have children. Additionally, we are committed to improving the lives of those dealing with sickle cell anemia.

How We Help

Day-to-day activities in our organization range from providing up-to-date information on the disease to sickle cell research, so sickle cell anemia can be cured once and for all. We also help people or families affected with sickle cell anemia achieve and retain home ownership by providing guidance. We educate our participants in all the areas of home ownership and financial freedom. Don't allow sickle cell to hold you back when applying for financing for your next home when you rely on our team of compassionate experts to help you qualify for home ownership. Members of our board have extensive knowledge and resources when it comes to real estate and are willing to assist you in any way possible. 

Contact us to make donations or to volunteer with our organization if you'd like to support our work. We are also hosting a fundraiser with the help of Amazon.

About Us

Founded in 1972, DVSCAI, formally known as Sickle Cell Anemia & Charity, Inc., started when a person close to our founders, Carolyn Lyons, served as a childcare provider to a child that died from the disease. This loss inspired us to find a way to provide education and support about sickle cell anemia. Now more than 40 years later, we still carry an unquestionable passion in instilling purpose and enhancing the quality of life of the afflicted individuals and families.


Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
