However, there are not many public sector entities in which there is an entire division where the sole purpose is to support Fathers. In his recent blog, Policy Planning Associate & Community Advocacy William Tarter Jr. writes about testimony given by Al Grimes, director of the Cuyahoga County Fatherhood Initiative to the Cuyahoga County Council Health, Human Services and Aging Committee.
