The Ohio Fatherhood Center is sponsoring an Achievement Award program:
  • The annual Ohio Fatherhood Center Achievement Award program is a non-competitive awards program that recognizes innovative fatherhood programs and related community services.

  • Achievement Awards are compiled in a listing of practices and programs with contact information to encourage replication and ongoing discussion to promote healthy and responsible fatherhood practices.
The annual listing will be included on the websites of Ohio University, the Ohio Practitioners' Network for Fathers and Families, and the Ohio Commission on Fatherhood. Achievement Awards will be announced as applications are submitted.

Achievement Award honorees will have their names placed on the websites for the networking program and will receive a certificate.
