The Ohio Family Violence Prevention Center was established at OCJS in 1999. Prior to the Center, no similar body existed in Ohio. The Center serves as an information clearinghouse for public and private organizations providing assistance to victims. The Center also offers a variety of services such as providing victim advocacy, resources and referrals, organizing workshops, giving presentations and conducting research on family violence and its impact on communities.

The Center is home to the Ohio Family Violence Prevention Advisory Council. The Council is where Ohio's top experts in domestic and family violence intervention and prevention disciplines come together to consider and recommend improvements in state laws and policies. The mission of the Council is to provide guidance, encourage coordination and promote action by government, the private sector and citizens to understand, prevent and respond to domestic and family violence including teen dating, sexual and stalking violence. The FVPC Advisory Council will also work as allies of other programs and agencies as they seek to end other abuses in our community which include but are not limited to such crimes as human trafficking, elder abuse, and child abuse.
