Action for Children believes that every life is a story – and our mission is for every father to be a hero in his child’s life story.

Our FatherUp services build up fathers across Central Ohio throughout every stage of their parenting journey – because empowered fathers empower families.


If you are a father looking to get connected to our services, call 614-957-0324
or visit the FatherUp Website  to sign up for a one-on-one orientation.

Follow FatherUp on social media to get news, resources, recipes, activities, and more.


Funding for this project was provided by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Grant: #90ZJ0045. These services are available to all eligible persons, regardless of race, gender, age, disability, or religion.

FatherUp is powered by Action for Children.
