about the fatherhood initiative

When fathers are actively involved in their children’s lives, the whole family thrives.

Our Fatherhood Initiative works to advance activities and trainings that support fathers, their families, and the professionals who work with them.

  • The Fathers & Family Network is a statewide networking and training group for family support professionals to help them enhance skills, learn new strategies for engaging fathers, and coordinate services across the state.
  • The Nurturing Fathers Program helps fathers build and strengthen positive parenting attitudes and behaviors.

To see our Fatherhood Initiative in action, watch the 11-minute "Dads Rock" video created by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
