About PASS

PASS (Prevention Awareness Support Services), is a non-profit organization service Allen, Auglaize, Hardin and Union Counties. PASS (formerly PVFF) was created in 2001 through a grant from the Anthem Foundation of Ohio. It began as a coalition made up of individuals representing over 50 organizations in Allen County. Serving the community through the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Allen, Auglaize, and Hardin Counties and the Mental Health and Recovery Board of Union County, PASS provides education, programming, and resource referral to critical issues. PASS supports evidence-based programs in each of the prevention focus areas of child abuse, alcohol and other drugs, mental illness, suicide and problem gambling. As referenced above, the next chapter in the PASS journey began in July, 2019 as we opened an office in Marysville to serve the citizens of Union County. The array of PASS programs is offered with the intent to keep the local community needs at the forefront of each interaction.
