IKP advocates for meeting the needs of abused and neglected kids and prioritizing their rights within the Hamilton County Ohio Child Welfare System.

What We Do


The Current Situation

When you go to bed tonight, over 2,300 kids will end yet another day in the custody of Hamilton County Children’s Services following abuse or neglect at the hands of their family. Some will find safety and healing. But too many will suffer—and sometimes die—despite being placed in our tax-payer funded system that routinely fails to meet the needs of our most defenseless citizens.

These 2,300+ kids, hundreds of them babies, could nearly fill every seat in the Aronoff Center. There are simply far too many for our very compromised system to handle safely and effectively.

Abused and neglected kids deserve a well-functioning and adequately supported child welfare system. We believe in the power of people to create it. Each one of us can impact change, including YOU.

Ways to Help

  • Write a letter/email to your Hamilton County Commissioners asking them to meet the needs and prioritize the rights of kids in the child welfare system above all else. Forward your letter/email to your contacts and ask them to do the same.
  • Attend a Hamilton County Commissioners Meeting to see your local government in action and to speak up. You have two minutes to speak on record about your concerns and ask questions. Use them to speak for a child with no voice. For the schedule, visit www.hamiltoncountyohio.gov.
  • Grow our voice. Know others who might be interested in our mission? Gather ten or more folks and we’ll send an IKP representative to lead a discussion ending with action steps.
  • Share us on your social media platforms and help us spread our message of hope and possibility.
