Fathers, Families and Healthy Communities: Promoting Fathers as Assets to their Children, Families and Communities
The overall goal of the FFHC Demonstration Project is to promote promising practices in the human service delivery field to improve the opportunities and outcomes for children of non-custodial fathers. FFHC believes by enhancing non-custodial fathers’ engagement with their families and leveraging the untapped assets of fathers, amazing things can happen to families and children. FFHC identifies the key barriers to improve engagement and designs a strategy that will leverage community assets resulting in better coordinated service delivery for African American non-custodial fathers and their families.
