May is Foster Care Month. The theme this year is "Relative and Kin Connections: Keeping Families Strong." Ohio START works to strengthen families every day, by providing peer support, parenting skills and concrete supports to START participants. We work to keep children in the home whenever possible, and to strengthen and maintain family bonds when they must be apart for a time.
As Michael J. Fox said it best:
"Family is not an important thing. It's everything."
