Welcome to the Ohio Practitioners' Network for Fathers and Families (OPNFF) Survey of Social and Health Services for Fathers

OPNFF is relaunching its survey of social and health services for fathers in the State of Ohio. Our goal is to update and expand our online database of targeted fatherhood programs and family service programs that engage fathers as part of their programming.  Please share the survey with your networks and help us recruit fatherhood resources across Ohio!

This survey consists of 20 short questions and will take you 10-15 minutes to complete.  It will be well worth your time!
  • The vital work you do will be viewable statewide on the OPNFF website ( 
  • You will be able to refer to fatherhood services in your area and across the state.
  • You will have contact information for networking and collaboration.
Results of the survey will allow us to
  • know and share the scope of fatherhood work in Ohio
  • identify service strengths and gaps
  • promote services statewide
  • identify needs for training and evaluation.

Survey results will be posted on our website continuously, as it is submitted. Together, with this technology, we can show that Ohio cares about families!  Contact if you have any questions.
