Building Community Capacity

Ohio Family and Children First Cabinet Council and County Family and Children First Councils have a unique function of Building Community Capacity. To build community capacity, it requires mobilizing communities to identify and address the ongoing needs of children and families through planning, implementing effective strategies, monitoring and reporting, and evaluating progress toward achieving desired outcomes. It also requires leadership, partnership, and collaboration to truly build a community’s capacity to address their greatest priorities and needs.

An effective practice model has been developed for Building Community Capacity.
