Fatherhood Development

Fathers in Action Support Group

Class at the Healing Place

Our "Fathers in Action Support Group" helps fathers to engage with their family, friends and community in ways that are healthy, nurturing and functional.

It seeks to engage men in the application of practical life and fatherhood skills through classroom instruction that leads to stronger families and community.

It encourages men to connect with their family and community in ways that are counter-intuitive to most of us in order to maintain healthy relationships.

Suits for Successworkshops are one of our community outreach efforts that empowers males through educational opportunities, life-skill building, career counseling and workforce development resources.

It seeks to empower males with the business skills, leadership skills, and organizational skills that lead to personal and professional advancement necessary for self-sufficiency.

It encourages males to examine how first impressions make lasting impressions, to develop a sense of style in their dress, and recognize the importance of personal grooming in obtaining and maintaining meaningful employment.
