In 1982, a group of citizens concerned about child abuse and its impact on children and families in our community came together to form the Frankfort Area Children's Council. The Frankfort Area Children's Council was formed and incorporated as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization in 1982 by concerned community citizens, to address the problem of child abuse in Frankfort, Franklin County, and the surrounding areas.
