Hello Advocate,

There's still time to call your state Senators today and tell them that you support the $20 million funding increase for child protection services. Your voice could help to ensure the safety of Ohio's children. For more information, click here.

1. Take Action Today! 

Join the movement to keep Ohio’s children safe by taking a few minutes to contact the following Senators:

What to say when you call or email:  

"Hello, my name is __________ from [your city / county] and I believe that children deserve safety and lasting permanency. Please invest in child protection services by increasing the State Child Protection Allocation by $20 million per year in the budget bill. I request that $8.8 million be allocated equally to all counties at $100,000 each and that the remaining $11.2 million be available through the State Child Protection Allocation formula for county Public Children Services Agencies to improve permanency outcomes for children, as a forever family is necessary for one’s success in adulthood.  

We must take care of all Ohioans across the age continuum from children to seniors. Please also consider an additional investment of $20 million in adult protection services as currently the Governor’s budget only provides $3.5 million for abused and neglected older adults. Thank you."
