ForeverDads announces new Board President Jason L. Wilhelm

New Board President has high ambitions for solidifying the permanence of ForeverDads in our community.

ZANESVILLE, OH – ForeverDads, a regional community based non-profit that provides programming and connects them to resources for fathers and families, is pleased to announce its new Board President for 2018.

Jason Wilhelm has been a member of the Board of Directors since 2014 and now is stepping into the role of President.

Jason is excited to take on this role. “With the help of an amazing wife, I am a father to four fantastic children. As a forever dad, I want to have a positive relationship with each of them. More specifically, I want my kids to grow up in a house with the comfort of knowing they have a loving, nurturing, responsible father in their lives. Like my predecessors, as the ForeverDads Board President, I wish the same for all dads in our community. Quite simply, my goal as Board President is to continue the work of encouraging, educating, and equipping fathers with the resources and role models necessary to be a forever dad to their loved ones.”

For the coming year, ForeverDads will continue its efforts to reach and equip fathers and families of our community and Executive Director Burl Lemon remains enthusiastic.

“We will finalize the purchase of our building in the coming months. Our Boot Camp for New Dads program has recently incorporated an element for new Moms. Our All Pro Dad’s Day Breakfasts allow us to partner with several schools throughout the community, and Inside Out Dad continues to equip incarcerated fathers to better lead their families upon their release. All of our efforts are coming together to ensure that ForeverDads is a part of our community for years to come.”
