The Columbus Urban League has sponsored its Father 2 Father program since 2008. This highly successful program teaches Fathers how to be nurturing, responsible dads who are involved and committed to their child's future. The program links Fathers with many community resources, including employment and assistance with child visitation and custody matters if needed. The Franklin County Child Support Agency is proud of its seven-year ongoing collaboration with the Urban League.
