Every child deserves to grow up in a safe, loving home, whether that is with biological, kinship, foster or adoptive families. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine created the Children Services Transformation Advisory Council to conduct a top-down review of Ohio's foster care system and develop recommendations on needed reforms so that more Ohio children have a permanent, loving place to call home.
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, in conjunction with the Ohio Children’s Hospital Association, hosted a free event called Building Resiliency: A Pediatric Mental Health Summit in September 2019 to help communities support the mental health needs of their children.
Moments after taking the oath of office, Governor DeWine created the RecoveryOhio initiative to ensure that we act aggressively to address this crisis and invest in the health and well-being of Ohio’s citizens.
The mission of the Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives is to promote solutions, including those from faith-based partners, to community needs and support the development of collaborative efforts to improve the well-being of all Ohioans.
