Dayton Christian Center is a Community Outreach Ministry of the American Baptist Churches of Ohio. One of more than twenty community outreach ministries with the American Baptist Home Mission Society, Dayton Christian Center serves the Dayton View Neighborhood in Dayton Ohio. Our mission work began in 1908 to serve a large immigrant population settling in West Dayton. Throughout our long years of service, we have provided programs including job readiness, food distribution, bible study classes, free tax preparation, educational programs, and recreational activities for the community. Since the very beginning, we have played an important part in the neighborhood adapting programs to serve the present age.
We currently provide child care services for children from 6 weeks through 12 years of age. In the summer of 2020, our Before and After School program as well as our Summer Program moved to our newly renovated building immediately adjacent to the main building. It houses two groups of school age children, while our main building provides care for infants to preschool children. Our partnerships with Miami Valley Child Development Center and Preschool Promise supports us in providing high quality affordable child care services. We are thankful our mission continues today!
