Fatherhood Engagement Services works to help strengthen father-child bonds and enhance the level of involvement of fathers in their DCF case planning, provision of services and positive parenting. Through intensive outreach, case management services and group programming, program staff help fathers learn skills and characteristics to strengthen their parenting relationship.
The program uses the 24/7 Dad© group-based curriculum, which consists of twelve 2-hour sessions to encourage and support men to be involved, responsible and committed fathers. These group sessions are supplemented with ongoing support and guidance through individual case management to help each father through his specific circumstances and reach his goals.
Fatherhood Engagement Services serves DCF-involved fathers within DCF Region 4 – Hartford and Manchester.* Referrals are made directly through DCF.
