Fatherhood Engagement Services strengthen families by effectively engaging fathers and involving them in decision making and service planning for their children.
Fatherhood Engagement Services are based on the National Fatherhood Initiative’s® flagship curriculum – the 24/7 Dad® program. The 24/7 Dad® program is a 12-week curriculum that covers the key concepts of self-awareness, self-care, fathering and parenting skills, and relationship skills. Participants meet as a group, once a week, for 12 weeks. Each meeting is two hours.
Weekly topics include men’s health, communication, discipline, getting involved, working with mom, co-parenting, dads and work, and children’s growth and development. The Fatherhood Engagement Services team also provides case management support to all fathers participating in 24/7® Dad.
