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.
