With the support of a caring community, Action for Children has been transforming children’s lives in Central Ohio for more than 45 years.

We serve seven counties in the Central Ohio area. We are the community’s leading provider of resources and training for professionals working with young children, parents and families seeking child care and agencies/businesses serving the early childhood community. We work hand-in-hand with parents, professionals and community partners to ensure that all children in Central Ohio have opportunities for quality early learning experiences that prepare them for success in school and life.
