Fathers on the Move in Findlay, OH - May 23, 2022
I'm truly humbled this morning to see Father's on the Move moving again in Findlay, OH. Our recent Level 2 graduate Toriano Henry will be launching here at this beautiful campus. Toriano and his wonderful wife Susan have already started ministry there.
"Words cannot convey the great honor and privilege I feel to have the opportunity to speak into the life of another human being in the construction of the best version of themselves.
A movement of life-building is happening. I invite you to come and be a part of it!"
A wonderful event with mothers and even a grandmother fished for first time. Big Mo and his brothers from Greensboro gave the kids Fishing 101 lessons on something they'd wanted to do for years. We had prizes and each kid went home with a brand new rod and tackle box. The smiles and joy with the kids and parents were truly unforgettable.

Fathers on the Move Graduation
and New Location in Kannapolis
FOTM Now Official Mentoring Agency for Partnership Academy High School
An Historic Day!!! for Fathers on the Move as it officially became the Mentoring Agency for Partnership Academy HS. This includes FOTM’s own classroom for mentoring kids during their school days. Bishop Glover gave them his testimony about having to go to an alternative school in the ninth grade – so it is very personal for him to show these kids they can be anything they set their minds and hearts to be.
In response, the kids literally ran to our classroom to sign-up, one after another, and later enjoyed a lunch of delivered Domino's Pizza.
Hearing the kids say that they didn't have a father or father figure in their lives brought real tears to our eyes.

Partnership Academy's Principal Stan Farrington with Bishop Victor Glover
FOTM graduate Travis Wright, who
now lives in Mississippi wrote a
song while in our class at Butner
Federal camp that told his story of
what the FOTM program did for his
life. A performance of this song
will be recorded at this event, and then
"I became a part of FOTM while incarcerated in federal prison. I spoke with my Bishop today who founded FOTM and we are currently trying to start an FOTM Branch in Mississippi so that all my young Brothers in the hood know that God is doing something behind the scenes that will work on their behalf ASAP. To be honest it was the best organization that I could ever be apart of considering my situation. It changed my life forever and we hope collectively on one Accord that we will be able to eventually do the same for you guys. God bless you all sincerely yours.
- Travis Wright"
Why FOTM and NANOE? As Fathers on the Move builds on multiple years of highly successful re-entry support of individuals in the Triangle Area, we are in the process of solidifying our infrastructure for the purposes of viable operation and sustainability. As a new member of NANOE we can now leverage the immense volume of organizational information, guidance, and best practices they have identified to our benefit and that of those we support.
About NANOE: NANOE is a nationwide network of donors, foundations and corporations whose relentless commitment to significant and sustainable impact transforms communities. NANOE investors are innovators who solve problems (not just service them) by deploying heroic missions of scale that confront social and environmental dilemmas.
