Community Partnership

We are proud to work with other agencies and organizations to support children and strengthen families.

Please let us know if you have a program or event that could benefit the children and families we work with.

Current Partnership include:

• The “Longest Day of Play” is a 1 day event held on the 3rd Saturday in June at Lake Shore Park. Several agencies and organizations come together to plan a day of fun for families to enjoy.  Check out their Facebook Page at

• The “Summer Foods” Program is a 9 week extension of the school lunch program that feeds the children in school districts with 51% of children who receive free or reduced lunches.  Check with Ashtabula Community Action for site locations and serving times.

• “Adopt” a Child for Christmas helps us provide Christmas gifts for our children living in foster care during the holidays. The holidays can be a difficult time for our children, but with the help of community members, businesses, churches and other organizations, we are able to provide gifts to children who cannot be with their families at Christmas. We will start matching children with donors in November; contact 440-998-1811 if interested in helping this year!

• Council of Dynamic Rural Ministries (CDRM) is a group of local United Methodist Churches who have chosen our kids as their mission. They help us provide various items and services for our school-age and emancipated youth who have aged-out of foster care that we do not otherwise receive funding for.

• Friends of Children Services is a fundraising and informational entity that provides overall support for the agency. The “friends” are current employees, care givers, community members, etc…who participate in events like the annual  Golf Outing which raises money for the Children’s Trust fund or the Levy committee that supports our levy efforts. You can like them on Facebook at to stay up-to-date on activities and information!
