Cincinnati Children’s values it’s partnerships in all communities, and in particular Avondale, the place they call home. Here’s a look at how Cincinnati Children’s is making an investment and connecting with Avondale neighbors in a meaningful way.

Cincinnati Children's Commitment to Avondale

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.
