Origo developed a branded awareness campaign to help launch a new website (developed by g2o) for the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS), with the goal to engage more Ohioans in the foster care and adoption process.


  • The Office of Families and Children, a division of ODJFS, launched a new website with g2o to create a simpler user experience for current and potential foster care and adoption parents, as well as the agencies in the field.
  • To help generate greater engagement in this effort, Origo helped develop a branded awareness campaign to build interest and urgency in fostering and adopting children in the child welfare system in Ohio.
  • To start the process, Origo conducted research and focus groups, helping to create the new campaign strategy It Takes Heart Ohio.
  • Utilizing the new brand strategy, Origo developed educational materials and media tactics to drive interested individuals to the site. We also created an e-blast campaign to engage foster care and adoption agencies in advancing our message.


After the launch of the new website, Origo exceeded expected results in a one-month pilot for campaign efforts, generating the following metrics:
