SPRINGFIELD, Ohio – Job & Family Services of Clark County introduced a breakthrough Web solution for individuals, families and agencies involved with children and youths ages 0-18.  

The Clark County Network of Care for Families & Children (www.clark.oh.networkofcare.org) is a “No Wrong Door” online information place that provides critical information, communication and advocacy tools with a single point of entry. This site can greatly assist families in finding the best services for their children, from insurance coverage to local services. It’s a better way to connect the community that cares for our children.

Regardless of where individuals, families and agencies begin their search for assistance with children’s issues, the Clark County Network of Care for Families & Children ensures they will find what they need. The new Web site will enable people to educate themselves about their issues; understand current policy initiatives and advocate directly to elected officials, and better manage their children’s activities, interactions and important records.

Clark County Network of Care for Families & Children provides a comprehensive Service Directory of the approximately 600 service providers in Clark County, putting people in touch with the right services at the right time. Network of Care also provides easy-to-search libraries and vital information about child care, pending legislation and advocacy, as well as daily news articles from around the world concerning children’s issues.

To increase accessibility and accommodate Network of Care’s users, the site’s innovative technology provides near-universal access, regardless of literacy or income level, to Web-based services through a text-only version of the site and other adaptive technologies. The site is fully ADA-compliant. Network of Care also is available in multiple languages.

Service providers can share challenges and ideas, as well as create powerful new mechanisms to better serve people with mental illness, mental retardation and substance abuse, by embracing Network of Care’s communication tools such as message boards and community calendars.  Service providers can even build their own free Web sites in the For Providers section.
