Making a Difference: Fatherhood in Ohio

Fathers play a vital part in children’s lives. No one argues with this research-based fact, but what’s happening in Ohio to welcome and help fathers take active, responsible roles? A LOT! We’re making progress in promoting father engagement in our schools, health care, child welfare systems and communities. Thanks to the work of The Ohio Commission on Fatherhood (OCF) and programs throughout the state, policies are changing and more fathers are accessing opportunities to become better parents, partners and providers.

While the parenting, education and health resources on Red Treehouse can be used by anyone caring for a family, check out some of these Dad-focused tips and tools!
