Dayton Children's ASK Network

Are you ready to make a difference for the 265,000 children Dayton Children's serves each year and the thousands of children who may enter our doors at any minute? Then join our Advocates Speaking for Kids (ASK) network and stand up for kids!

Dayton Children's relies on our ASK network to be a powerful, persuasive voice for children as public policy decisions are made. The ASK network is a group of Children's employees, volunteers, patients, families and community members who care about children's health and work to influence policy on behalf of children. Without the ASK network we never would have had the impact on our elected officials when it came to important decisions affecting children.
