The Ohio Children's Trust Fund (OCTF) was created in 1984 to prevent child abuse and neglect by investing in strong communities, healthy families, and safe children. As Ohio's sole public funding source dedicated to child abuse and neglect prevention, the OCTF funds regional prevention councils throughout the state, which in turn funds community-based primary and secondary prevention strategies at the local level.
