The State of the Child Luncheon is Directions for Youth & Families’ signature event where we come together as a community to recognize “the state of the child” in central Ohio. This is our largest fundraiser supporting the programs and services we provide to over 5,500 youth and their families annually.

Join us as we showcase the talent of some of the youth from our after-school programs as they enthusiastically share music and dance performances!

You will also hear heartfelt stories about the impact our counseling programs have made on the lives of youth and families.

In addition, there will be an art exhibit in the lobby showcasing art for sale created by youth in our after-school art programs. These items include our signature wood soul bowls, tiles and ceramics.

The 29th annual State of the Child Luncheon will begin at 12:00 p.m.with registration at 11:30 a.m., on May 9, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Columbus.

We hope you will join us to celebrate the progress being made in helping today’s kids become tomorrow’s adults. For information on tickets and sponsorship go to www.dfyf.org or call 614.294.2661.
