Mission: “Through collaboration provide quality support services for the well-being of children and families”
Maggie Henry, Coordinator
Every county in Ohio has a Family and Children First Council. Each council includes public and private agencies, as well as parents. Council members work collaboratively to enhance the well-being of their county’s children and families by building community capacity, coordinating systems and services, and engaging families.
The Child Intervention Team was created to provide service coordination and planning for families with children in crisis needing services from more than one county agency. The CIT coordinator facilitates collaboration among the county’s agencies and organizations and aims to bring services to families and children in a way that is simple and organized. CIT encourages early intervention in an effort to prevent children from out of home placements or from entering the juvenile justice system. The goal is to support children in the least restrictive environment. At all times the best interest of children and families is the fundamental concern.
