The Ottawa County Drug Free Collaborative will recognize International Overdose Day on Friday, Aug. 30 on the lawn of the Ottawa County Courthouse in Port Clinton. Collaborative members and public officials will unveil the “2018 Silent Silhouettes” at 1 p.m. to mark Overdose Awareness Day.
The public is invited to attend the special day, which will include a proclamation by the Ottawa County Commissioners and provide an opportunity for everyone to remember the people who have been lost, while making a commitment to those in recovery.
Also sponsoring the event is the Ottawa County Family & Children First Council in Oak Harbor, a partnership of local government, community members and families that enhances the well-being of Ottawa County’s children and families by building community capacity, coordinating systems and services, and engaging families.
Ottawa County’s FCFC’s vision is that every child in Ottawa County will feel safe and secure within a stable family.
Established in Ohio in 1993, Ohio Family and Children First (FCFC) was defined as the Governor’s Children’s Cabinet with the purpose of streamlining and coordinating government services for children and families. Ohio’s 88 counties have each established an FCFC office.
