A Partnership for Success. (PfS) is an initiative of the Ohio Family and Children First Cabinet Council and is administered by the Ohio Department of Youth Services.
PfS has five intended outcomes: 1.) To mobilize county Family and Children First Councils (FCFC) to reduce youth problem behaviors and improve family and child-well being outcomes most important to their county; 2.) To reduce duplication of effort between and among state and local agencies; 3.) To make better local decisions that lead to better investments of public dollars; 4.) To evaluate the impact of county investments with an eye toward accountability, and 5.) To provide for long-term sustainability of effective programs and services. In SFY-2008-2009, PfS will work with 49 counties. Supplementation at the county level is defined as the process of turning a strategic plan into a series of action steps that are subsequently executed, compared and measured to each county's specific goals or "intended impacts." County councils will be expected to effectively mobilize and expand their collaborative past current legislatively mandated expectations, develop and implement strategic plans, programs, and services that are informed by community data and the current research on best practice.
