From The Director
Ohio’s long-term prosperity depends upon all children having an equal chance to thrive and succeed. To that end, we champion statewide and local public policies that expand opportunities for youth to grow up in safe neighborhoods, access comprehensive health coverage, be educated in high–quality, positive learning environments, and receive age-appropriate treatment by the justice system. The Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio seeks to educate the public on the challenges that children and families in our state face and to advocate for change that guarantees all children the opportunity to succeed in life.
