COVID-19 Resources: Messages from The Center and Resources for Families >

To Our Awesome Community

February 15, 2017
  • Your unwavering support for the past 72 years gives us confidence moving forward. Thank you!

  • We are incredibly thankful for such generous support from you – our community – who made our dream for a New Center a reality.

    For more than seven decades, The Childhood League Center has been a trusted leader in providing services for vulnerable children. Over the years, thousands of lives have been changed, impossible milestones met, and generations of advocates raised. And while we are proud of all of this, there is a component to our story that sometimes is overlooked.

    You. The community. Since 1945, The Childhood League Center has been surrounded by a community that not only believed in our mission, but mobilized in support and generous financial contributions. Without this, we simply would not be here today.

    This New Center is no exception. In fact, it shows the depth of these connections and the strength of the commitment to helping more children. Appreciating the past 70 years allows us to look forward to the next 70 with confidence. Thank you! 

    Every success is OUR combined story.

    Marley's Story

    Marley joined our early intervention program which happens at home. For a therapeutic play experience, Marley’s mom brought her to The Center. Watch what happens!


    I defy anyone to visit The Center without wanting to help in some way. It’s a magical place that sees opportunity where others might see limitation and achieves “impossible” progress. They are passionate about doing everything possible to help children maximize their potential now, as well as building future advocates in their families.

    On January 3, 2017, we opened the doors for the first time in our new state-of-the-art facility located on the historic Fort Hayes campus in Columbus. Hundreds of people from all sectors of our community came out to celebrate and show their support for our work and mission. Read more about the incredible response from the community at that event. The opening of this building marks new possibilities for The Center, which in turn, means more resources for the community. 

    With your support, The New Center has:


    All of this is possible through the generosity of the community, from people like you. THANK YOU!
