OHIO’S APPROACH

The goal of Strengthening Families Ohio is to prevent child abuse and neglect by providing a common framework and a set of tools to all individuals, organizations and systems that touch the lives of young children and their families.  Working with childcare professionals, child welfare professionals and community organizations, the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund will help facilitate the integration of state prevention strategies, strengthen families within the early care and education and child welfare systems and engage parents and communities in building protective factors.
