Ohio Avenue Youth Center

Programming at the center for youth and families includes counseling, early childhood services, arts, and recreation. Leadership development and drug, alcohol, and violence prevention are the focus of after school performing and creative arts activities.

 
 
Community-based after-school and summer camp programming provide opportunities for young people ages 8-17 to enhance their personal growth and development.
 
 

In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.


Youth participants at our Ohio Avenue Center had the opportunity to participate in an Art Contest for OhioHealth Hospitals. Several youth will receive prizes for their creative, powerful, and thought-provoking artwork. View the artwork.
