Father-centered, free, and available to all fathers, the Pathways to Fatherhood program at WSOS Community Action Commission aims to help men develop healthy, lasting relationships with their children and give them the tools to maintain those relationships.
There is no income eligibility for this program and all services are free to all participants residing in Wood, Sandusky, Ottawa and Seneca counties. It is made available through a federal grant to WSOS.
All information fathers share while in the program is confidential, according to George Dupey, the family advocate for the program. "What's said in the room stays in the room."

Eli McIntosh is enjoying life as a kindergartner at Kenwood Elementary in Bowling Green.
So is Aleks Ostrowski, a member of the kindergarten class at St. Aloysius School.
Like the other children in their classrooms, Aleks and Eli are learning to read simple words, add simple sums and "work and play well with others."
But 6-year-old Eli and Aleks have a special challenge to overcome. Each has a condition called Apraxia of Speech, described by medical professionals as a very challenging and complicated, but little-known, neurological speech disorder.
"The kids know what they want to say, but they can't make the mouth form the words," explained Eli's mom, Beth McIntosh, current president of an organization called Northwest Ohio Apraxia Support.
"I was one of the parents that started the organization two years ago."
