Logan County received a $100,000 grant on June 1 as part of the $3.4 million in grants distributed by Ohio's Local Government Innovation Council.

The  Logan County Family & Children First Council applied for this loan, which they plan to use towards the Collaborative Case Management System Project.

Angela Haver, Executive Director at Family and Children First, explains, "The Collaborative Case Management project is a feasibility study to explore the innovative idea of using technology, hopefully via an online platform, as a means to coordinate community social services."

By conducting this feasibility study, the council hopes to explore how this coordination could increase job retention, decrease poverty and homelessness, while also cutting costs and catching the eyes of investors.

If this study results show a need for this system, Haver explains "a family would get a coordinated plan that is a holistic focus for the family that will meet all of their needs."

The council works to better the future of children and families in the community, and feel that this grant will help with their mission. "We are hoping that this feasibility study will allow Ohio and other key partners to invest in the technology to directly make outcomes better for kids and families in the community," said Haver.
