A recent U.S. Census Bureau report shows one in three children nationwide grow up in a fatherless home. A local organization in Clark County helps local men become better fathers. The organization has just received a new grant that will help the group called Urban Light Ministries serve more people.

The Ohio Commission on Fatherhood awarded Urban Light  Ministries a four-year, $420,000 grant to partner with the Ohio Job & Family Services to offer fatherhood programs in Clark, Montgomery and Greene Counties.

Only six awards were given to agencies around the state.
