The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services is creating a $1 million Emergency Response Fund to help agencies and caseworkers burdened by the ongoing opioid epidemic. 

The department says the fund will enable it to provide more aid for children and family services agencies throughout the state.

A three-person team will offer intensive training and technical assistance in the short term.
