Ohio child-serving organizations have created child-focused recommendations for Governor DeWine and the 134th General Assembly as they consider their first biennial budget and deliberate on how to effectively invest in Ohio’s children, families, and future.
Investing in Ohio’s children is critical for Ohio’s continued success.
The Ohio Children’s Budget Coalition's recommendations are aligned with the DeWine agenda and elevate issues to help children thrive across our great state.
To achieve their full potential, each child must be loved, safe, cared for, healthy, educated, fed and nurtured.
We know what Ohio's children need to thrive.
Programs exist that support economic security for families, changing children’s lives for the better and increasing educational outcomes and lifetime earnings.
However, we as adults must look at children and families holistically, not just in pieces and parts and must be willing to invest in their success.
Each member of the Coalition provides in-kind support through the development of Issue Briefs, thought leadership on critical children's issues, and coalition leadership.
