What is the Family Information Network of Ohio?

The Family Information Network of Ohio (FINofOhio) is a statewide parent network designed to keep family perspectives at the forefront of Ohio’s Help Me Grow (HMG) system by offering support through information and education to families of young children and the professionals who serve them.

FINofOhio activities include:

FIN was recently awarded the prestigious Pierson Award given by the Beach Center of Families and Disabilities to an exemplary Parent to Parent Program of state and national significance. The Ohio Public Images Award of Excellence was presented to FINofOhio for FINfacts, its bimonthly publication for families with young children.

Each of Ohio's eighty-eight counties has a Family Information Network of Ohio Consultant. Your FINofOhio Consultant can...

  • connect you with a Family Support Specialist (a parent of a child who can offer you information and support in your county)
  • connect you with another parent whose child has the same or a similar diagnosis as your child.
  • Set up educational sessions for families in Help Me Grow
