About our Joyful Together December Newsletter release

Joyful Together, our evidence-based program that limits toxic stress in children while enhancing childhood resiliency and adding positive childhood experiences has proven success in our Ohio communities. This success has taken on many different variations ranging from parent-caregiver relationships to positively impacting early childhood educators and pediatricians. We explore the Joyful Together process, and a deep look into our Joyful Together Ohio Children’s Trust Fund 2021-2022 project.
