                                                            FAMILY FIRST PREVENTION SERVICES ACT

The Office of Families and Children has convened a Leadership Advisory Committee to help guide Ohio’s planning and implementation efforts necessary for the successful fulfillment of the requirements of the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA).  This Act was signed into law on February 9, 2018 and challenges states’ current child welfare practice by placing emphasis on the use of evidence based prevention services to alleviate the need for placement of children in foster care, and ensuring appropriate settings are used for children in foster care. 

All resources created through the work of the Committee will be posted on this page.  Please check back often for information and resources below:
