The Ohio Children’s Trust Fund is a member of the National Alliance of Children’s Trust and Prevention Funds. This important partnership provides the OCTF with access to programs and training that can be used in Ohio to strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect.
By using this national resource, we can introduce innovative ideas and programs to Ohio while also being efficient and effective with the dollars we receive from fees collected at the local level and individual and corporate donations.
What is the National Alliance of Children’s Trust & Prevention Funds?
The National Alliance of Children’s Trust and Prevention Funds provides a variety of services to state Children’s Trust and Prevention Funds — like OCTF — throughout the country. State trust funds join the alliance and receive access to training, technical help, and consulting from other trust funds. Through the alliance, states are able to communicate about what works in their state so that everyone becomes better at preventing child abuse and neglect.
The Alliance sparks ideas and development of new programs and services to strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect. It also acts as an advocate for state trust funds to increase the public and private money available for prevention programs, and to promote awareness of why strengthening families matters as a prevention strategy.
OCTF has been a member of the Alliance for over a decade.
Through our membership, we’re able to obtain and adapt training materials for a variety of professionals who work with families. Those professionals in turn go out into their communities and provide support to parents, grandparents, and other people who care for children.
That education and training has a ripple effect from professional, to caregiver, to child. Ultimately, the child benefits by having a more stable and healthier environment when the caregiver feels supported and less overwhelmed.
