State Advisory Council

About our Council

Our State Advisory Council is made up of a diverse group of representatives. This includes parents, grandparents, foster parents, adoptive parents, and other caregivers from urban, rural, and suburban areas. The council also includes high school student delegates, school leaders, representatives of community organizations, and ambassadors from businesses and other community agencies. In total, there are approximately 50 members on the council.  

Council members:
*Attend meetings throughout the year in Columbus, Ohio to learn from others and share their experiences from their own communities and organizations.
*Participate in Council discussions and activities, guiding and informing the work of the Center with their rich and diverse perspectives.
*Engage with their community and are enthusiastic ambassadors for the Center.
