Fatherhood Engagement Services

Our 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, Village staff help fathers learn skills and characteristics to strengthen their parenting relationship.

Fatherhood Engagement Services uses the 24/7 Dad© group-based curriculum, which consists of 12 two-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.

I want to thank The Village and everybody that’s involved with it — we appreciate the Fatherhood Engagement Services program and it gives us hope that there are people that care for single parents like myself.
