It’s important to all of us.

The academic, social, and emotional growth of our community’s children is not only important to us, it’s our responsibility. We are the adults. They need our help, our support, and our love.


There are many ways you can advocate for not only the children of your community, or just the children of central Ohio, but for children everywhere. You can…

  • write letters to local and state officials.

  • champion efforts for more and better childcare and preschool options in underserved neighborhoods.

For more ideas, opportunities, and inspirations, visit GroundWorkGroup and First Five Years Fund.


As a not-for-profit organization, we rely on the support of organizations and individuals like you to carry out our mission and help the educators, care givers, parents, and children of central Ohio. Thank you.
