Programs for Dads

Reconnecting Fathers

Reconnecting Fathers is an eight week group program just for fathers who are unable to live with their children, especially during times of transition including marital separation, and court or CAS involvement with the family. The objective of the program is to assist fathers during these transitional times to be more engaged with their children, more supportive of the mother, and in better control of themselves. This program assists fathers in developing the attitudes, knowledge and skills needed to establish and maintain a healthy fathering presence in their child’s life.
