Program Staff

Our staff are some of the most experienced and knowledgeable fatherhood practitioners in our state.

We emphasize interaction in our program because we’ve seen that bonding among participants and with staff helps fathers be more open to new ideas and more willing to accept new challenges.    

Fathers are always welcome to call or come by any of our offices to meet us and discuss how we can help.
