History of Kare-a-Lot
Kare-a-Lot was founded by Mila Neuman in 1984 to provide care and education to Columbus area families. It started at the Riverside Drive location in Upper Arlington and eventually grew to two locations (Grandview) to serve its clients. The Grandview location was sold in 2017 to Amanda Kulesza who works on site.
