Cincinnati Children’s has called Avondale home since 1926. Primary focus areas of the medical center’s partnership with Avondale are to reduce infant mortality and prematurity, improve kindergarten readiness and third-grade reading and improve the community’s health.

As part of this partnership, Cincinnati Children’s operates three school-based health centers year-round for all children in the neighborhood. Our Pediatric Primary Care Clinic also located in Avondale, focuses on families who lack access to care.

And, Cincinnati Children’s is investing $10 million in community building efforts with our Avondale partners over five years (2016 – 2021). A few of the initiatives include addressing early literacy, preschool quality, social and emotional development, and positive parenting and employment programs.
