Children's Ministries Christmas Mission

In 2020, First Congregational Church of Hudson and The Children's Center opened a 2nd location of the Children’s Center … The Children’s Center at Valley View. The new preschool serves at-risk preschool children in Akron’s Valley View neighborhood, part of the Akron Municipal Housing Authority. This preschool provides families access to a quality preschool in an area where no other opportunities exist. In addition to the Kindergarten essentials, the preschool also offers breakfast and lunch for all students with minimal to no tuition. This year, the class is at full enrollment with 10 students.

Again this year, as we strengthen our connection to the school and surrounding community, we are choosing The Children's Center at Valley View as our Christmas mission recipient. We invite you to choose how you would like to help support the Children's Ministries Mission by ...
