About Us

The Ohio Council is a statewide trade and advocacy association representing over 165 private businesses providing community-based prevention, substance use, mental health, and family services throughout Ohio.  Our member organizations care for individuals and families across the lifespan by offering person-centered services and support.

The Ohio Council Governance:  Established in 1979, the Ohio Council is governed by a 15-member Board of Trustees, composed of member organization chief executives.  Elected by the membership, the Board provides strategic direction for the Council and leadership to the organization’s committee structure.  The Ohio Council’s primary revenue source is membership dues, but it also generates revenue from grants, offering professional education and training events, and member-only products and services.
