Spring is a time for hope!
As the days grow warmer and longer, we encourage you to enjoy the blooms, croaks of frogs, scents of the warming earth, and other signs of spring. Spread the joy -- consider ways you can share hope with others!

2023 Annual Report


The 2023 Licking County Children and Families First Council Annual Report presented at the Council meeting on February 7, 2023, highlights Council accomplishments!

Community Voices is
connecting with parents and caregivers at the Canal Market

Community Voices members are excited to spread the word about their group. Through the generosity of the Mental Health and Recovery Board of Licking and Knox County, the group is able to have a presence at Newark's Canal Market to let parents and caregivers know about the support they offer and resources available to families of children with needs in areas such as mental health, developmental disabilities, juvenile justice, school, child protection, health, etc.


Licking County Children and Families First Council is a funded partner of United Way of Licking County. 
Other funders include our Council partners, state allocations and grants. In-kind support from our local partners increases our capacity to coordinate services for children and families.
