2016-2017 24:7 Dad Fatherhood Groups

24:7 Dad® is a fatherhood program for any father, stepfather, grandfather, uncle, or father figure.  Our 24:7 Dad® Group is facilitated by our Father Engagement Coordinator, David Bryant.  In the group fathers learn that a 24:7 Dad is aware of his role as a father, takes care of himself, and works on fathering, parenting, and relationship skills.  Participants receive a handbook as being a part of the group.  The cost is free to attend this weekly gathering of fathers striving to be the best examples for their children.
