Latchkey Children Registration
Database Systems Corp. (DSC) provides an automated calling program called CARE (Call Reassurance) that calls children who are home alone after school when their parents or guardians are unable to be there. This service contacts children to ensure they are OK.
If the call is not answered, an immediate alert is sent to the parents by phone or email, notifying them that their child did not answer the CARE call.
DSC provides an easy signup form to register your child in this program.
NOTE: Filling out this online registration does not obligate you to this service. DSC supplies an online agreement that must first be signed and submitted by fax or mail. This contract provides all pricing and terms of agreement. Only after you submit this agreement is your account activated.

DSC provides an easy and secure sign-up procedure (For a quick overview, please visit the registration information web page). Everything can be done using our Latchkey Kids website.

Create An eCARE™ Community Account
eCARE™ is an online service developed by DSC for community organizations or groups that wish to provide CARE services to their members. By creating an eCARE account, you can add one or more members to this account and manage individual schedules and call information as if you had your own CARE phone system. eCARE accounts are designed for groups who do not wish to purchase and maintain computers or lease phone lines. DSC does all of that for you.
You can create and manage a community organization eCARE account for free using our online registration process.
With this account, you can enroll children and other community members using various different profiles including home alone children calls. Individual members of this community receive special discounts when enrolled through a single eCARE account.
Click on the Create eCARE™ Account link below.
Enter your organization's name, a valid email address along with your own password, and we will establish your eCARE account.
eCARE can now be used as your primary calling program for seniors in your community or can be a backup to any other system that is currently making these calls.
eCARE is a pay-as-you-go service and you only pay for the calls that we make.
