Our Goal: To improve the health and well-being of infants and their families by empowering fathers and father figures to be knowledgeable, involved, and emotionally engaged with their children.

Children who grow up with involved fathers experience better mental, emotional, educational, and social outcomes, and are:

  • 39% more likely to earn mostly A’s in school.
  • 45% less likely to repeat a grade.
  • 60% less likely to be suspended or expelled from school.
  • 2X as likely to go to college or find stable employment after high school.
  • 75% less likely to have a teen birth.
  • 80% less likely to spend time in jail.

 

Many new fathers struggle to figure out their role when their spouse or partner has a baby. Our new fatherhood program offers education, training, and support to help men become the responsible, engaged, and empowered fathers their children need them to be. Our dedicated Fatherhood Coordinator can help with:

 

  • Parenting & Co-Parenting Education
  • Improving Child Development
  • Building Healthy Family & Community Relationships
  • Workforce Development & Economic Stability
  • Personal Development
