What is OOTF?
The Ohio Olmstead Task Force is a grassroots coalition of people with disabilities of all ages, family members, advocates and organizations advocating together for the right to live, work and participate in their communities.
Our Mission is to advocate for life in the community with dignity and justice for Ohioans with disabilities.
