The Children's Defense Fund exists to provide a strong and effective voice for all the children of America, who cannot vote, lobby, or speak for themselves. We pay particular attention to the needs of poor, minority and disabled children. The goal of the Children's Defense Fund-- Greater Cincinnati Project is to educate individuals in Southwest Ohio about the needs of children and encourage preventive investment in them before they get sick, drop out of school, suffer from the breakdown of their family, or get into trouble.

"Every parent, every grandparent, every teacher, preacher, leader, and citizen must commit to save our children. If our children thrive, the nation thrives. If our children fall, American falls with them."

- Marian Wright Edelman

We would like to thank the hundreds of Ohioans from across the state who contacted their Members of Congress on May 15th in support of increased investments in child care.

Over 20 key legislators heard from over 600 of you. You joined thousands of other concerned citizens from across the country, who also made their voices heard to hundreds of legislators.

Continue to visit both this website and for updates on this and other legislation that will ensure no child is left behind.
