Our programming is holistic and comprehensive, designed to help fathers in every area and stage of their lives.
While many organizations provide parenting programs, our local organizations concentrate on the unique role of the father and his impact.
We not only provide educational tools for fathers but also practitioners and the community at large. Our goal is to help men, families and the systems that support them learn how re-engaging fathers is vital to the health and well-being of children, families and communities. Some men join voluntarily. Others are court-ordered to attend. All fathers receive the same services—including a support network that can help them solve long-standing problems.
Our services are offered at no cost to program participants.
All we require is commitment.
Child Support Help
For men facing incarceration solely because they can’t pay child support, we offer Jobs Not Jail as an alternative, helping them meet obligations and solve the problems behind their inability to pay.
For men coping with complex issues, local programs refer fathers to partner organizations.
Staff members work with participants individually to create their One Man Plan, with specific goals and strategies to reach them. Each father can get help with:
- Navigating the child support system
- Mediation with the child's mother and other family members
- Access to health care
- Record expungement
- Finding a job
Outreach & Awareness
In addition to working with fathers and families, we provide education for the broader community including:
- Reports, news, and training for practitioners
- Consulting services to share our experience and expertise
- Community events and campaigns that promote the value of fathers
- Outreach to media across the state to highlight issues and showcase successes
