We make good kids better.



St. Vincent Family Center has been a part of the Central Ohio community for more than 140 years and cares for more than 5,000 children a year. We’re proud of the fact that nine out of ten of those we serve are able to successfully return to their school, family and community – but it’s your support that makes it happen.

We make good kids, better. Join us.

SVFC’s Transportation Initiative


Each day, St. Vincent Family Center ensures that 200 preschool and elementary students arrive at St. Vincent Prep Academy safely and ready to learn. Transportation is often a significant barrier to children receiving the care they so desperately need. Thank you to our dedicated community partners who have financially supported the transportation needs of our little ones!

Your support keeps our 20,000 square-foot, newly updated facility running every day. Our programs provide both in-home and community-based care. We support and train foster families to ensure they can be a positive home to vulnerable children. And our Pre-School and Prep Academies teach kids critical academics and critical behavioral management skills.

Supporting St. Vincent Family Center means supporting these programs, including transportation costs for pre-school children. To make your gift now, visit our secure online giving form. To discuss other financial giving options, please call Deb Huff at (614) 252-0731 ext. 1132.
