There are fathers in our community that could use your help. They may not have had a healthy father relationship growing up or for various reasons have not been involved with their children. You can help by sharing your own skills and experience to help these men become better, more responsible fathers by becoming a mentor through our Father Engagement Program.
The Board of Supervisors recently proclaimed June as Fatherhood Awareness Month. Watch county resident Moses Cobb talk about how the Father Engagement Program helped him to become a better father for his two sons:
Becoming a good father is a learning process. We are here to help if you and your family need some assistance handling uncomfortable feelings such as stress and anger, or creating consistent, nurturing routines for family activities. We provide free parent education classes that also include an evening meal and child care.
Before your child steps foot into preschool or elementary school, their first teacher is you. We have simple, easy to understand steps and resources to help you guide and assist your young child to learn important skills and confidence.
