Congratulations Mariah Horn - 2014 Advocacy Award Winner

At the Ohio Job and Family Service Directors’ Association we have the honor of representing the county agencies which provide work, health and human services to Ohio’s most vulnerable residents; including kids in care, the unemployed, underemployed, those needing healthcare, child care, food and public assistance and parents seeking child support, as well as other seniors, children and families. County agencies see firsthand the needs and challenges too many Ohioans face and we do our best with the means available to help improve the lives of those we serve.
