The Village for Families and Children

In Connecticut there is a fatherhood program under The Village for Families and Children group. They are dedicated to working with fathers to help them raise strong children that will be the future of our state. The Village has operated its Fatherhood Engagement Services since 2019. More than 200 men have completed the program, which is meant to teach positive parenting to fathers. Fathers in the program meet regularly in group sessions and talk about parenting skills. 

FAM: Fathers Achieving Mindfulness

D’Angelo Reynolds created FAM: Fathers Achieving Mindfulness. It’s an online and in-person space for local dads to build relationships, shape characters and remodel their communities. D’Angelo believes that every man has a road that he has to go down and every step of the way, if he’s not trying to achieve some kind of mindfulness, that he’s kind of just wasting time. They plan group events like flag football, crafts with their kids and community service. Now, FAM has a podcast and book club, and maintains online discussions. In addition, Reynolds said they talk about everything to how to season a grill to how to battle an addiction.

The Dad Project 

The Direct Assistance to Dads (DAD) Project is a free, voluntary program. It provides home visits to fathers and their families in Milwaukee. The DAD Project uses the evidenced based Parents as Teachers home visiting model. It provides parent support, identify potential child hood delays and improve school readiness. They do this by working with fathers and their families to identify their goals. In addition they are supporting these fathers in their efforts to meet their goals.
