About our ECSI Newsletter Release

Our Early Childhood Safety Initiative, funded by Ohio Children’s Trust Fund provides parents and caregivers with the tools they need to succeed. Our focus is to give parents the tools and resources they need to raise resilient children with limited adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and increased benevolent experiences. ECSI seeks to eradicate the barriers that parents and caregivers face while providing them with tools for success.
