Collaborating to Keep Ohio Families Safe & Together


Please Note: In line with guidelines and preventative measures regarding coronavirus/COVID-19 coming from agencies, the state, and Capital University (which houses the Ohio Intimate Partner Collaborative), all Safe & Together in-person trainings are cancelled through at least March 31st. Please check back in the coming weeks for updates and new training dates.

The Ohio Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Collaborative is a partnership of the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services, the Supreme Court of Ohio, the Family and Youth Law Center (FYLaw) at Capital University Law School, The Safe and Together Institute, and other key stakeholders dedicated to addressing IPV in Ohio child welfare cases by providing public children services agencies and community partners with technical assistance and Safe and Together trainings that focus on perpetrators’ patterns of behaviors, non-offending parents’ protective capacities, and the impact of domestic violence on children.


The Collaborative was established with the goal of keeping children in the care of the survivor parent when that is a safe option and reducing trauma to those experiencing violence in their homes by forging community partnerships to develop a collaborative and holistic response to intimate partner violence.
