The joint mission of Fame Fathers and the National Fatherhood Initiative is to improve the well-being of children by increasing the proportion of children growing up with involved, responsible, and committed fathers.

Bright Ideas Ohio

Fame Fathers participates in the State of Ohio's Bright Ideas initiative. Bright Ideas Ohio is a project of the Governor's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. It highlights promising practices by Ohio nonprofits to encourage peer-to-peer learning and innovation.

The bond between a father and his child, the love that grows between them each and every day, the inspiration they give each other...
now that is the stuff of fame and legends!
