About us



The Ohio Family & Children First Coordinators Association represents coordinators of Family and Children First Councils established in 1992 by Section 121.37 of the Ohio Revised Code. Family and Children First is a partnership of government agencies, community organizations and parents committed to improving the well-being of children and families through strategic coordination of resources. This partnership is designed to draw people out of their day-to-day systems and align resources and activities around a shared vision that Ohio’s families and children will thrive and succeed. The Association is uniquely positioned to assess front-line needs, develop best practices, share lessons learned, encourage and support accountability in local councils and service providers and enter strategic partnerships with other organizations that address issues having to do with children and families.
