Engaging Our Community

As the lead community-based care organization, Kids Central is dedicated to building and sustaining relationships with local community groups, businesses, and residents.

Kids Central’s Community Affairs Department serves as a liaison between the community and Kids Central by disseminating organizational information and bringing back community information to the agency. Community Affairs continues to oversee website content management, social media management, media relations, public meeting coordination, and newsletters.

As part of its Community Engagement, Kids Central hosts annual prevention and awareness campaigns, as well as annual fundraising events. Through circuit-wide partnerships, Kids Central continues its annual child abuse prevention campaign, End Kids’ Tears, launched each April. Additionally, Kids Central helps raise awareness for the need for foster parents in May, adoptive parents in November and the prevalence of domestic violence in October.
