Engaging and Empowering Families

Ohio Family and Children First Cabinet Council and County Family and Children First Councils have a unique role to recruit and support parents to be active contributing members on county FCFCs; be involved in key decision-making efforts; and serve as an advocate for children, families and communities.

An effective practice model has been developed for Family Engagement and Empowerment.

In addition, the OFCF Cabinet Council formed the Family Engagement Steering Committee that identified policy opportunities to strengthen and enhance Ohio's efforts with family engagement and developed a website for parents and professionals.  To learn more about this effort, click here.
