D and N Institute

  • The D and N Institute, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization was founded by Sallie T. Carey in 1996. She was troubled by the amount of pain and suffering that she saw in the community, and she wanted to create an organizations specifically designed to preserve and enhance life for all people with a special emphasis on children, seniors, sick and shut in residents, as well as the homeless.


    True Vine Ministries has worked in conjunction with the D and N Institute for over 20 years to offer services in the community and provide nutritious food, warm clothing, education, and spiritual guidance to everyone in need.  True Vine events such as the Annual Block Party, Food Pantry and Clothing Room are done in partnership with  D&N.
