Regional Prevention Council Applications  


  
  

Background  

Since its creation in 1984, the Ohio Children's Trust Fund (OCTF) has funded primary and secondary prevention strategies conducted at the local level, in addition to initiatives and projects of statewide significance, which are all designed to strengthen families and prevent child abuse and child neglect. Primary prevention is defined as services and programs that promote the general welfare of all children and families before abuse or neglect occurs and are accessible to everyone in the community.  Secondary prevention programs are activities and services that are provided to a specific population identified as having risk factors for child abuse and child neglect and are designed to intervene at the earliest warning signs of child abuse or child neglect, or whenever a child can be identified as being at risk for abuse or neglect.     

Starting in State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2016, local trust fund prevention efforts were shifted to a regional model and are now led by Regional Prevention Councils. Each council is directed by a regional prevention coordinator in partnership with county prevention specialists. Together, the regional prevention coordinator and county prevention specialists conduct a comprehensive needs assessment and create a regional prevention plan for their region. After receiving OCTF Board approval of the regional prevention plan, each regional prevention coordinator may contract with local service providers to serve families in the region and ensure that the plan is implemented correctly and that all progress is measured and reported.
