Just for Dads

Creating a better life for young fathers and their family

There is little support offered for fathers, yet studies show young children with actively engaged fathers have better outcomes including reasoning skills, educational achievement, and self-esteem. These gains show up in school as well. Children with involved fathers are 39 percent more likely to earn A`s in school, and twice as likely to go to college and find stable employment after high school.

Fristers embraces young fathers. We provide them with a community of support, individual coaching and case management, group classes and workshops, community referrals, and special events. We help young fathers step up to the role that’s come upon them and be more engaged. We help them to stay in school, find employment and connect with their child in a healthy and productive manner. We help fathers build healthy relationships and become a positive role model for their child.

“I thought the dad's group was a great experience. I didn’t expect to have so much fun learning how to raise a child. I learned how to prioritize my family first, putting my kid's needs before mine. I learned that I’m not alone. There are other dads facing the same problems I’m going through; with the same questions, they might be too scared to ask. The dad's group taught me how to show love to my kids and my spouse. It helped me to understand the role of a father and how it impacts a child’s life. Lastly, it helped me learn how to better my relationship with my child. Just having someone to talk to can help a lot.”
