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."
All fathers, regardless of economic status - custodial and non-custodial fathers, stepfathers, foster fathers, fathers-to-be, father figures, grandparents serving as fathers, disabled fathers and others - can participate. They are encouraged to apply to do so.
However, parenting skills and information are only one aspect of this program. Those enrolled also receive such services as job development, economic stability workshops, financial education training, life skills training, referrals to other needed services, basic and occupational skills advancement, educational certificate programs, and support services.
One aspect of developing healthy, long-lasting relationships with their children is to assist the men to develop the tools needed to provide economic stability for their families. The fathers learn strategies and exercises that allow them to become the father their children need.
For more information on the program, call Dupey at 419-334-3332.
