OHIO CHILDREN'S TRUST FUND COORDINATION
Leading the effort to prevent child abuse across northeast Ohio
Stark County Family Council is the Regional Prevention Coordinator of the Northeast Ohio Regional Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Council, which serves 11 counties: Ashland, Columbiana, Holmes, Lorain, Mahoning, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Trumbull and Wayne.
In this role, we carry out the work of the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund in these counties.
The Ohio Children’s Trust Fund has a very simple goal: “to prevent child abuse and neglect through investing in strong communities, healthy families and safe children.”
To ensure that, we focus on parents, caregivers and professionals who serve families. When the people who surround children have the support and resources they need, then children get the nurturing environments they deserve. What we value above all else are strong Ohio families — of all types. Visit our partner's website to learn more about Ohio Children's Trust Fund.

All of these activities add up to support our goal of providing children in Ohio with the best chance at safe and healthy childhoods.

When the families of Stark County win, we all win.
