CDF-Ohio began our investigation into Appalachian Ohio with our 2001 report—Ohio’s Appalachian Children—which provided a first-ever comprehensive look into the well-being of the region’s children. The region continues to suffer many of the same challenges today—poverty, health disparities, and pervasive food insecurity to name a few—that existed in 2001. While there are signs of hope, the passage of time has made many of the problems more acute.
It is a critical time for Appalachian Ohio. CDF-Ohio has a long commitment to this region. We present this report—Ohio’s Appalachian Children at a Crossroads: A Roadmap for Action—to bring awareness to the region’s current challenges and, more importantly, to promising practices and recommendations for action.
