  • parenting support
  • education
  • health
  • and other self-sufficiency goals.

The father advocate will support you to meet your goals.

  • Child development education
  • Parent education
  • Educational enrollment/obtainment
  • Job training
  • Connecting to community resources
  • Screening for other needs

Interpreters are available.
