A coalition of health and human services advocates is expressing support for the governor’s pitch to help economically struggling Ohioans move out of poverty, though the group has concerns about how the goal will be accomplished.
    
Republican Gov. John Kasich says he wants county job centers to create a more comprehensive approach to focus a variety of services on individuals based on their needs. He says his budget, being unveiled Monday, will reallocate $310 million in existing federal and state funds to support the initiative.
    
But a coalition called Advocates for Ohio’s Future says county offices don’t have the resources to carry out their current responsibilities, and such an approach would likely require additional state investments.
    
The group says it looks forward to seeing additional details about the idea.
