The Center for Child Health and Wellness has numerous programs in the community available to help us meet our vision to make all children in our region happy and healthy! Learn more about these programs below!
dayton asthma alliance
The Dayton Asthma Alliance aims to positively impact the health and wellness of children with asthma in the Dayton area, focusing on the most at-risk populations. Using the Collective Impact framework, the Alliance engages local, state and national members, as well as other partner organizations, to collaboratively implement a variety of strategic actions to improve outcomes for children with asthma.
Injuries are the leading cause of death and disability to children in the United States. Dayton Children’s is dedicated to preventing childhood injury in our region. The Center for Child Health and Wellness recognizes the power of partnership to keep kids in our community safe and works within our community to reduce instances of injury.
Kohl’s Cares a minute for kids
Every day, people and companies across our region are doing amazing things to support kids. Kohl’s Department Stores, Inc. is no exception. Through its Kohl’s Cares® program, Kohl’s strives to be an active member of each community where it does business. Right here in the Miami Valley, Kohl’s donates 100% of the net profits of special Kohl’s Cares® merchandise to Dayton Children’s to support the Kohl’s a Minute for Kids campaign.
family resource connection
The Family Resource Connection uses a patient’s visit to the doctor as an opportunity to address non-medical issues that may have an impact on a child’s health. This program screens patient families for social needs and then identified families are referred to an Advocate working in the Dayton Children’s Hospital Family Resource Connection for resource connection and follow-up.
Reaching beyond the walls of the hospital to improve health naturally includes partnering with schools. Dayton Children’s partners with local schools in a variety of ways to improve both health and educational outcomes.
