Geauga Family First Council brings together resources to promote Safe, Healthy, & Stable Families and Children in Geauga County

Geauga Family First Council is a collaborative, interagency organization designed to meet the diverse needs of families living within Geauga County through a unified system of services.  The Council is strongly committed to removing barriers for multi-need children through prevention, early intervention and an inter-system provision of services which support the entire family.

Many families within Geauga County require the support of more than one agency.  As a result, over the past several years the Council has helped to develop and now funds a broad continuum of community-based services for these families.
Most of the children and adolescents served by the Geauga Family First Council are in need of assistance such as:
  • Child development/early intervention programming
  • Health services
  • Juvenile justice intervention
  • Mental health and substance abuse counseling
  • Social services
  • Special education

Geauga Family First Council provides the framework for county agencies to coordinate collaborative efforts and take a proactive approach to sharing information, discussing areas of concern that impact both families and services, and developing community solutions to identified issues.
