Advocacy is a pillar of the Ohio Children’s Alliance and a foundational goal.

Ultimately, our aim is to educate policymakers on child and family sector issues to aid them in decision-making and resource allocation.


We also want to ensure that our member agencies and the families they serve have the tools to communicate first-hand what changes are needed to improve the system. Their personal experiences and lessons learned are important components to educating public policymakers about child and family-serving systems and the continuum of services provided—including family mental health, foster care, day treatment, residential treatment, and much more.
