The Fulton Fatherhood Initiative is designed to aid and support fathers in their very important role. The FCCF and it's staff believe that parent's are their child's first and most important teachers and promote activites and programming to bring this message to families. The Fulton Fatherhood Initiative has been developed to aid and support fathers in the child's growth and development. Various activities will help educate fathers on pregnancy and birth, child development, creating family stability, and continued support throughout their child's life.
- Fatherhood Events and Workshops
These activities are designed to encourage father/child interaction.
- New Daddy Support Group:
These workshops educate fathers on infant care, postpartum changes in the mother, and how to deal with the life altering event of a new baby.
-Daddy Time Support Group:
Participants of this group will be connected to on-going staff support to address any questions and concerns. This is a time for fathers to gather the information they need to be the best father they can be.
