• Foster care and adoption.
• Residential treatment.
• OhioRISE, a program focused on keeping more children and families together by creating new access to in-home and community-based services.
• Services to help youth involved in the juvenile justice system succeed by staying crime-free, achieve academically, and get and keep jobs.
• Street outreach and resource center for homeless youth.
• Shelter, housing, and life skills training for young people ages 17–24 experiencing homelessness.
