The next session of the program sponsored by the Loudoun County Department of Family Services to help fathers build skills to become even stronger dads begins Tuesday, June 29, 2021. All fathers are welcome to attend the free, 12-week virtual program. 

Area fathers are encouraged to register for the National Fatherhood Initiative’s 24/7 Dad® program to strengthen their relationships with their children. The virtual workshops will take place weekly on Tuesdays, beginning June 29, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Early registration is encouraged as space is limited.

“We want all fathers in Loudoun to know that we support them, especially in these challenging times,” said Ina Fernández, director of the Loudoun County Department of Family Services. “A father’s presence in the life of a child plays a significant role in a child’s happiness and development.”

Developed by fathering and parenting experts, the 24/7 Dad program teaches fathering techniques and strategies, provides fathers with peer support and guidance, and allows fathers the opportunity to discover their own parenting strengths.
