Family & Children First








Ohio Family and Children First (OFCF) is a partnership of government agencies and community organizations committed to improving the well-being of children and their families.  As a mutli-agency umbrella, OFCF focuses on bringing individuals, agencies and organizations together to better serve children and families.

OFCF was created by state law in 1993, to help families seeking services for their children.

Each board of county commissioners was to establish a county Family and Children First council.

Clermont County Family and Children First has established the following:

  • Purpose:  To be the entity responsible for the planning and coordination of services to multi-need children and families in Clermont County .
  • Mission:  To promote and facilitate communication and collaboration among Clermont County child and family serving agencies to ensure that Clermont County infants, children, adolescents and their families receive appropriate and responsive services to enable youth to develop adequate skills in preparation for a successful adulthood.
