As the planning entity for Cuyahoga County, the Family & Children First Council promotes a collaborative system of care emphasizing coordination across a continuum of family-centered, neighborhood-based, culturally competent services to ensure the well-being of every child, and to preserve and strengthen families in their communities.
Cuyahoga County will be a community comprised of strong, stable, families, with each being able to provide for the basic needs, health, and education of its members. Families will utilize their unique strengths, heritage, and culture in the pursuit of opportunities that will nurture and enrich their lives. Those needing assistance in strengthening parental functioning or maintaining family stability shall have convenient access to culturally sensitive health, education, and social services. Such services will be available through an integrated system of care that includes public agencies, private providers, schools, and general community organizations. Through the development and strengthening of personal support networks, families will become involved in community activities and organizations, thus contributing to community building efforts and sustaining viable family life.
