Fatherhood Summit - Thursday, May 19, 2011

The Montgomery County Department of Job & Family Services is sponsoring a “Fatherhood Summit” on Thursday, May 19, 2011, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Haines Children’s Center at 3304 N. Main Street in Dayton.

At the summit, organizers will present an overview of the challenges faced by children who need fathers in their lives.  The summit is calling on community leaders to help develop an action plan to promote responsible fatherhood in all areas of the community.

“In Montgomery County, the number of homes without fathers is truly having a detrimental impact on the children in our community,” said Assistant JFS Director, Robert Gruhl, Child Support Enforcement Division.  “As community leaders, we have a responsibility to address

this issue head-on so that more children are connected to both of their birth parents in a positive and nurturing manner.”

Statistics from the National Fatherhood Initiative show:

Montgomery County is one of 12 Ohio counties chosen to take part in the Ohio Commission on Fatherhood's effort to promote awareness of fatherhood issues and encourage fathers to have some constructive role in their child's life, even if they are not part of the household.
