PWSA of OHIO Newsletter

Presidents have come and gone since this first issue, but the goal of the newsletter has remained The PWSA of OHIO Newsletter “The Voice” printed its premier issue December, 1993. Many the same – getting information and support to families.  We now have many avenues to reach those in need.  In 1999, brochures were developed from PWSA of OHIO and each year more are added to the state’s library. In 2000, our website was established, giving us another way to distribute information.  “The Voice” is printed 3-4 times a year and is a benefit of membership.

A sample of the PWSA of OHIO newsletter is available to view on-line using Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Although a membership fee is requested to support our mission to our children, no one is ever denied a yearly membership due to the inability to pay.  The only requirement is an updated/completed full membership form each calendar year.
