Fathers play a significant role in their child’s life that others cannot fill. This role can significantly impact a child and help shape them into the person they become.
Our Fatherhood Program support fathers while improving parenting skills, increasing their knowledge of effective fathering, and promoting a positive relationship with their children. We focus on building self-awareness, self-care, fathering, and relationship skills through a 12-week culturally-responsive course consisting of individual coaching sessions.
Fathers attend weekly classes and engage in community events and activities in their child’s life.
Children who have a closer relationship with their father are more likely to have higher confidence as a child, are more likely to go to college after high school, and find stable employment.
The patterns a father sets in the relationships with his children will dictate how his children relate with other people. T
A child is more likely to express their emotions in a healthy way and have a greater tolerance for stress/frustration, less hesitation/fear in new situations, and an increased ability to resist peer pressure to stand up for themselves.
Research shows that when fathers are engaged in their child(ren) lives, the child has fewer behavior concerns.
Girls who have a relationship with their fathers have shown fewer signs of depression than girls who do not have a relationship with their fathers.
Studies show affectionate and supportive fathers dramatically affect a child’s cognitive and social development, instilling an overall sense of well-being and self-confidence.
