in June 2017, The Ohio Commission on Fatherhood co-sponsored fatherhood celebrations and responsible fatherhood campaigns throughout Ohio during the month of June. In partnership with community-based agencies and organizations, these celebrations reached into urban, suburban and rural areas. Responsible Fatherhood Month is designed to: provide crucial information to help fathers be better parents, partners and providers; promote positive fathering and co-parenting; showcase local providers of fatherhood resources and information; and highlight the alarming number of fatherless children in Ohio.
