Voices for Ohio's Children is one of the almost 500 organizations that have endorsed Advocates for Ohio’s Future (AOF), a nonpartisan, statewide coalition of health and human service advocates. We encourage you to support their efforts as well by signing on as an endorsing organization.
AOF is made up of local and statewide organizations that promote health and human service budget and policy solutions so that all Ohioans live better lives. AOF is dedicated to maintaining vital public services at a level that meets people’s basic needs and protects our state’s most valuable resource – our people.
Ohio’s communities thrive when people are safe, have good jobs and can afford the basics. When families can pay for the basics, like housing, child care, food, and repairs, that spending strengthens the economy and supports local business. When Ohioans can’t afford the basics, the economy slows down. A slow economy harms the local community, including businesses and Ohioans at all income levels who call it home.
Voices and AOF want Ohio to be great place to live and work, but we have a ways to go to make this vision a reality. We invite you to join us as we continue to build a statewide network of advocates to carry a unified message to the Ohio Statehouse. Our collective efforts really do make a difference, especially as we advocate to strengthen Ohio’s families and communities in the state budget.
