In November 2019, Governor DeWine created the Children Services Transformation Advisory Council to build on the historic investments included in the State Operating Budget providing more opportunities for families and children.
The Children Services Transformation Advisory Council was tasked with:
- Travelling the state to better understand local barriers and best practices.
- Promoting a shared state and county vision for agency purpose and practice.
- Reviewing data, trends, and policies regarding the current foster care system.
- Providing recommendations and strategies to strengthen all areas of the system, including kinship care, foster care, adoption, workforce, and prevention.
The advisory council is in the process of creating their recommendations. If you would like to provide testimony on how you have been touched by the children services system, please click here.
