Ohio's Path to Employment First

Ohio

“Successful implementation of Employment First requires a multi-pronged approach and a long-term commitment to systems change…. A comprehensive approach must focus on key strategies; all designed to work synergistically to impact a service structure that better supports people to achieve community employment and directs more resources toward that preferred outcome.”
