Akron Children's is the home base for 2 Safe Kids Worldwide® coalitions. Since 1992, Safe Kids Summit County has been based at our hospital in downtown Akron. In 2010, Akron Children’s took the lead on Safe Kids Mahoning Valley, which is based at Akron Children's Community Outreach, Education and Support Center in Boardman. In 2016, Akron Children's Hospital became the home of Safe Kids Ohio.
