Mission & History
Building a network of support for those impacted by gambling through collaboration, education and research
Founded in 2010, Problem Gambling Network of Ohio (PGNO) helps those impacted by gambling through community outreach, workforce development, and quality assurance of Ohio's gambling support services.
PGNO is neither for nor against legalized gambling. Gambling exists as an enjoyable entertainment for many people. If and when gambling becomes an issue that impacts an individual’s life with consequences including difficulties with personal and/or work relationships, PGNO seeks to meet its mission statement by providing a network of support to problem gamblers, their families and the professionals who assist them while bringing awareness to this issue.
