About the Forums

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.

The Children Services Transformation Advisory Council, created through Executive Order 2019-27D, will hold a series of seven regional Foster Care Forums.

All are invited to attend, and those with lived-experience with the foster care system are encouraged to submit testimony.
