Starting in SFY 2016, Ohio Children's Trust Fund (OCTF) local child abuse and child neglect prevention efforts are being led by Regional Prevention Councils, which are directed by Regional Prevention Coordinators. Each council is comprised of county prevention specialists who are appointed either by the county's Board of County Commissioners or by the OCTF Board. As part of this regional strategy, the Regional Prevention Coordinators convene meetings and facilitate discussions for both the Council and established workgroups for each region. The Coordinator collaborates with the county prevention specialists to conduct the work on behalf of the council.

For more specific information pertaining to the roles of council members, please review the summary document found here.

If you are interested in serving on a regional prevention council and are not a county commissioner appointed member, please review the OCTF Board Appointment application below. Please note that while the OCTF Board may appoint county prevention specialists to each region's council to serve a three-year term that is eligible for reappointment, but for two consecutive terms only, the OCTF Board will ensure local support of this appointment prior to confirming.

If you are intersted in learning more about the work being done in each region, please review the schedule of council and workgroup meetings, as well as the directories of county prevention specialists for each region.
