The Ohio Juvenile Justice Alliance (OJJA) is a statewide coalition dedicated to enhancing Ohio’s future by improving the structure, function, and outcomes of Ohio’s juvenile justice system in order to give all of Ohio’s children the opportunity to reach their full potential. CDF-Ohio serves on the steering committee of OJJA and helps to shape its activities.
In 2015, OJJA released a series of fact sheets that provide a comprehensive, holistic overview of the current state of Ohio's juvenile justice system as well as recommendations for where we need to go next to continue to reform the system and better serve Ohio youth.
