Seven Fatherhood Grantees Selected for SFY 2018-2019
After careful consideration, we have chosen seven established fatherhood programs to fund in state fiscal years 2018 and 2019, with two levels of funding: $240,000 for programs that serve multiple counties and $100,000 for programs that serve a single county and/or that have not previously received OCF funding.

Welcome, Heidi Wallace!
The commission welcomed a new staff person this month: Heidi Wallace. Heidi is our data researcher for the New Beginnings for New Fathers federal grant. She has a master's degree in social work and joins us from Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities, where she was a vocational rehabilitation counselor and managed a large number of electronic case-related data and records. We're thrilled she's bringing her social work and data research experience to OFC!
